  • Russia Moves East
    By Lieutenant Commander H. M. Kieffer, U. S. Navy

    The history of Russia is the history of a pendulum. Striving for expansion to the sea, she has swung from one point of the compass to the other. Balked in the west, she turns east. Foiled in the east, she turns west. As the mass of a sphere gives...

    By Commander John Warner Moore (Ch.C.), U. S. Navy and Lieutenant Commander Alfred P. H. Tawresey, U. S. Navy

    By Fletcher Pratt

  • Better Iron Men for the Navy
    By Commander L. J. Gulliver, U. S. Navy
