Format: Hardcover
Captain Hughes is the first person to formulate a method of tactical thought geared for naval officers (vice policy-wonks in the world's defense establishments). While on initial perusal, the book appears to be a historical survey, Hughes actual aim is to inspire naval officers to develop a methodology for tactical analysis which can be applied to real-world tactical problems. He provides simple examples of operations research models of naval combat. These models do not provide the "answer" to tactical problems but rather provide the means to formulate tactical principles in a systematic fashion. One doesn't have to be a mathematician to understand this book, just someone open to new ways of looking at an old problem.

Although written as a text book. A person can read this book and get an appreciation of the problems of naval warfare particularly involving fleet. Many historical problems that I have heard. Such as why the German's in WW1 did not use their fleet much more and why the Japanese kept splitting their fleet in WW2 are explained here very well.
I have learnt a lot from this book.

Format: Hardcover
The book is a very good summary about five principles of naval tactics (Scouting, Command, Doctrine, Information, Training ) that could apply almost wherever there are forces in conflict or complex actions integrated by several people. These principles are clarified with historical battles and their results. It also include the evolution of naval tactis with techology.
