Many books and articles have been written on wars in narrow seas. However, none deals in any comprehensive manner with the problems of strategy and conduct of naval operations. The aim of this book is to explain in some detail the characteristics of a war fought in narrow seas and to compare and contrast strategy and major operations in narrow seas and naval warfare in the open ocean..
"Naval Strategy and Operations in Narrow Seas is unique in littoral warfare literature because it is not written from an amphibious operations/Marine Corps perspective. By both merit and default it now is the very best published study of its type. I hope Vego"s contentions succeed in challenging all serving naval professionals to think and write about what we plan to do in littoral waters."
