The Naval War College Review is a scholarly journal, published quarterly under the auspices of the U.S. Naval War College and the Department of the Navy, but exercising editorial independence; the thoughts and opinions expressed in the publication are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the department or the U.S. Naval War College.
The Review has been published continuously since 1948. It serves as a forum for discussion of public policy matters of interest to the maritime services. The candid views of the authors are presented for the professional education of the readers. Articles are drawn from a wide variety of sources to inform, stimulate, and challenge readers, and to serve as a catalyst for new ideas.

The Great White Fleet arrives in Australia, August 20, 1908. In “The Great White Fleet Sails Today? Twenty- First-Century Logistics Lessons from the 1907–1909 Voyage of the Great White Fleet,” Christopher McMahon uses the difficulties the battle fleet of the U.S. Navy encountered on its around-the-world voyage of more than a century ago to make the case that USN forces attempting to operate in the western Pacific area during a modern crisis likely would suffer from many of the same logistical vulnerabilities.
