By Sir Julian S. Corbett (Author)

Sir Julian Corbett was regarded as one of the greatest naval historians of the early twentieth century. Long after his death, his books are still in print and have become classics of naval history. Despite his prominence, his two volume Maritime Operations in the Russo-Japanese War, 1904–1905 was never available to the public during his lifetime.

Sir Julian Corbett was regarded as one of the greatest naval historians of the early twentieth century. Maritime Operations in the Russo-Japanese War, 1904–1905 was never available to the public during his lifetime. As noted in the introduction to Volume I, Corbett dealt not with “minute details and themes,...but a continuous narrative that demonstrated the interrelationship of land and sea events as they impinged on each other in conception, execution and results. Thus political objectives, geographic factors, and the machinery of government all could be seen working together as part of a whole.” Corbett’s work delineated the differences between maritime and land warfare, while also exploring their interaction.

Published in hardcover by the Naval Institute Press in 1994, both volumes are now available in paperback for the first time.

Praise
  • Canadian Naval Review, review. “Corbett has drafted an exceptional analysis of the Russo-Japanese War. His style is engaging and easily maintains the reader’s interest throughout. His analysis and ability to capture succinctly the broad canvas of the conflict makes this book mandatory reading for commanders at all levels (regardless of element) who wish to appreciate the complexities of combined operations. Very highly recommended.” (Print Review, 12/14)

Sir Julian S. Corbett was trained in the law, but became a noted British naval historian, who died in 1922. In addition to the influential work, Some Principles of Maritime Strategy, he also wrote numerous other books including England in the Seven Years War, A Study in Combined Strategy, The Campaign of Trafalgar–1805, and Drake and the Tudor Navy.
