Admiral, The: The Memoirs of Albert Gleaves, Admiral USN
Admiral, The: The Memoirs of Albert Gleaves, Admiral USN

"A memoir to be enjoyed by all who are interested in our naton's naval heritage of going down to the sea in ships. When Albert Gleaves first entered the fleet after graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1877, he served in a navy largely inherited from the Civil War. He vividly describes his experiences in the old navy which was giving way to a modern fleet of steel and steam with colorful accounts of his cruises to the South Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Western Pacific. This fine work, from the able pen of an officer who served his country with great distinction, is a welcome addition to the published literature about our navy and a reminder that our naval service's traditions and legends were laid by Admiral Albert Gleaves and other gifted leaders. We who serve today owe them a debt of thanks," said Admioral James D. Watkins, former Chief of Naval Operations and U.S. Secretary of Energy in his foreword to this book.

Added Rear Admiral John R. Wadleigh, "This autobiography of a senior officer in World War I brings into print a significant addition to recorded U.S. naval history, half a century after the author's death. It covers the period from 1873 when our aging wood-iron fleet stood 12th among navies, to 1922 when a great bulding program would soon make our Navy first in firepower.... Gleaves is credited with the development of the convoy tactics by which over 2,000,000 men and their equipment were sent overseas by November 1918.... Worthwhile reading for those who want to learn more about that period."
