Naval War College Review


Timothy D. Hoyt


This volume is largely successful not only in emphasizing the continuity and wisdom of Colin Gray’s long-standing defense of the study of strategy but in capturing his delight in skewering the latest intellectual fads in both American and British security theory. Strategy and History is a rich and occasionally pro- vocative read for any student of strat- egy, military issues, or international relations, and it reinforces the need to study strategy—the relationship be- tween military force and desired politi- cal objectives.
