Naval War College Review


C.O. Fiske


The Third International Seapower Symposium convened at the Naval War College for the week of 15-19 October 1973. Thirty-nine countries sent senior representatives, including six attaches and eighteen CNO equivalents;* they were joined by Admiral Zumwalt for the full week. Nine navies sent their Naval War College director as a second delegate. Because of the theme chosen, inter-naval cooperation with emphasis on nonmilitary use of naval forces, the U.S. Coast Guard played an active role. Two flag officers represented the Commandant, and five other officers provided Coast Guard insights to the Regional Committees.
