A Little Life

Victory at Sea: Naval Power and the Transformation of the Global Order in World War II

by Paul Kennedy

Paul Kennedy is a British author specializing in military and naval history, global economic issues, and great power relations. Kennedy’s work has resonated with audiences around the world for his engaging presentation of complex, historical subject matter – most notably, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers which has been translated into 23 languages. Kennedy is currently a professor of British History and Director of International Security Studies at Yale University.

In Victory at Sea, Kennedy depicts the dramatic transformation of the naval landscape among the six major navies during World War II. Kennedy brings to life the role naval presence would play in America’s rise as a superpower during the Second World War. Written by an academic through an analytical lens, readers will enjoy a fascinating journey through maritime history, enhanced by the spectacular illustrations of marine artist, Ian Marshall.
