Milan N. Vego


"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."
