A book about Naval Tactical Thinking

Essential Knowledge for Surface Ship Warfare Officers

Warfare at sea differs fundamentally from warfare on land or in the air, so does naval tactical thinking. Although these warfare domains definitely interact and do have a lot in common they cannot be fought in the same way. To think naval tactics are the same as on land would be a grave mistake. You can hide on land and in the air you can run. But at sea, once you have been found, there is no place to hide and nowhere for you to run. You have to fight out the battle that is coming. And it requires every effort either to win that fight. Or to break contact so you can escape your enemy and live to fight another day.

Many good books on naval strategy have been written. There are also various books excellently describing historical naval operations. But books on modern naval tactics are rare. The reason is that often tactics are confidential because of the specific details on military equipment required for the execution of those tactics. However, the basic rules used in naval tactics have remained remarkably unchanged over time. They can be derived from general limitations imposed by the sea and by the way ships must be built. This book captures these basics and presents them as a guide to naval tactical decision making.

Understanding these basics is essential for anyone who wants to become a warfare officer on board a surface warship. Hence it is why this book is used in the training of officers in the Tactical module of the NAVTRAIN Maritime Warfare Course.
