  • The Importance Of Innovation In Germany

    History shows that when faced with unpalatable choices and the reality of the environment-capability gap, leaders often cycle back to prior phases in the design process . The British Royal Navy confirmed this regression when they dismissed the findings of the 1924-1925 Newport simulations, which revealed superior advantage to carriers that could mass aircraft in repetitive pulses. Although, the Royal Navy lacked this capability, they discounted emerging doctrine from the US Marine Fleet Exercises and the Tentative Manual (1934), and presumed their flight deck configuration to be sufficient to achieve sea dominance.

  • Trafalgar Analysis

    Trafalgar. “At close range… [the cannons] were devastating – they were nicknamed smashers” (Adkins, 76). A key component to this deadly weapon was its uncontested rate of fire produced by the flint-lock mechanism (Adkins, 104).
