Alden was Head of English, History and Government Departments at the Naval Academy. A survey of the history of the United States Navy, especially that of the last quarter of a century, will show that the study has its value, not only for thrilling-stories of heroism and devotion, but for an understanding of the forces shaping national progress. Thus, though it is peculiarly adapted to naval officers, it should have, in time, a real meaning for all students of American foreign relations. This book, in its original form, was written seventeen years ago to meet the needs of the Naval Academy. And now, to meet similar needs, it is continued to the present year.
