A professional life of one the United States Navy's master technocrats; Joseph Reeves having been at the cutting edge of the gunnery revolution of the early 20th century before becoming the father of carrier strike force doctrine in the USN. This is before turning into an apostle of operational readiness in the Thirties. Though it's no fault of the author, seeing as Reeves was apparently not given to recording his personal opinions for posterity, it would have been fascinating to know what the impact of the Schley-Sampson feud after the battle of Santiago had on the man, seeing as he was right in the middle of it as an engineering officer on the USS Oregon, and whether this is the origins of the man's distaste for the cut and thrust of bureaucratic battle.
