Naval battles have long captured the popular imagination, from confrontations between Athens and Sparta in the ancient world to the epic conflicts that took place during the World Wars and beyond In this riveting series of lectures, Professor Timothy B Shutt of Kenyon College explores the naval battles that have helped to establish empires and have changed history.Throughout the course of world events, as trade and com merce grew in importance and nations became ever dependent on the import and export of all manner of goods, control of the world s waterways and shipping lanes became a key determinant in which nations reigned supreme As demon strated so aptly in the World Wars, blockades at sea can strangle a nation as effectively as sieges laid against walled cities of old.With studied insight into the events that have shaped the world over the millennia, Professor Shutt imparts an under standing and appreciation for the importance of naval warfare in world history and of the grandeur and daring that define these awe inspiring clashes Lecture 1 SalamisLecture 2 ArginusaeLecture 3 EcnomusLecture 4 ActiumLecture 5 LepantoLecture 6 The Spanish ArmadaLecture 7 The Downs and the Dutch WarsLecture 8 Quiberon BayLecture 9 TrafalgarLecture 10 TsushimaLecture 11 JutlandLecture 12 The Battles of the AtlanticLecture 13 The Battle of MidwayLecture 14 Endgame The Battles of the Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf Download High Seas, High Stakes: Naval Battles That Changed History Author Timothy B.

    This is one of Shutt s weaker offerings His main area of study seems to be epic poetry in the Middle Ages This collection of stories that illuminate a small collection of military world history comes off as much less polished than his other courses, but still his enthusiasm comes through The course also suffers from the typical weakness of the Modern Scholar course guide The actual naval battles cry out to be illustrated with maps and diagrams to show the geography and movements involved, an This is one of Shutt s weaker offerings His main area of study seems to be epic poetry in the Middle Ages This collection of stories that illuminate a small collection of military world history comes off as much less polished than his other courses, but still his enthusiasm comes through The course also suffers from the typical weakness of the Modern Scholar course guide The actual naval battles cry out to be illustrated with maps and diagrams ...

    I listened to the lecture rather than reading it, thus profiting from the subtle enthusiasm of the lecturer for his topic I can understand, however, that those less familiar with some of the history would be confused by Shutt often jumping around too quickly or leaving our some introducto...

  5. Avis Black says:

    This lecture series has a fundamental problem in that each battle is treated so briefly that you feel like you didn t get a chance to learn them This is not so much the fault of the professor as this choice of format, namely allowing only so much time for each fight.

  6. Craig says:

    If you re a student of naval history Professor Shutt is not likely to tell you anything about Trafalgar or Midway you don t already know, that said, this is a very good survey of naval battles and would be a perfect introduction to the subject for a bright teenager interested in such things.

    I didn t like my first try, but this time I enjoyed the lectures Will follow up with some related reading.

  8. Dermo says:

    not much in this course which I didn t know the title was a bit bombastic and the lecturer had a very over the top method of reading not bad, just not very good
