"​​Machiavelli declared that keeping up with changing times is the foremost challenge for any commander or sovereign. Captain Hughes is the Navy’s Machiavelli in that sense—helping us adapt our tactics for the age of cyber and robot warfare. The go-to work on the subject—now as for three decades." —James Holmes, J. C. Wylie Chair of Maritime Strategy at the Naval War College and coauthor of Red Star over the Pacific

"This sophisticated yet approachable book chronicles the 200-year fight for freedom of navigation by the U.S. Navy. From the Quasi-War with France and Barbary Wars to the ‘Tanker War’ in the Persian Gulf and China’s dangerous gambit in the South China Sea, this story shows how the perilous failure to stand up for legal rights of navigation tragically leads to war. A unique and sobering analysis of international law, sea power, and strategic security." —Admiral James Stavridis, USN, Dean Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
