Re: Influence of sea power on French Revn. & Empir

Teddy Roosevelt like him.

He was actually more read and admired in Britain than the USA because his theories, based on the development of British seapower, exactly fit the British attitude at the end of the 19th century. He was also widely read and admired by the Japanese and the Germans who set out to build battle fleets. We know the result.

There has always been a very strong isolationist element in the USA which dislikes any kind of foreign involvement. That is because the USA is at one and the same time, both a continental power and a maritime power. This was never the case with Britain.
