Naval Institute, 1937, 1937 
RODGERS, William Ledyard. Greek and Roman Naval Warfare : A Study of Strategy, Tactics, and Ship Design from Salamis (480 B.C.) to Actium (31 B.C.). Annapolis, Maryland : United States Naval Institute, 1937. First Edition. Pp 555. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt decoration to front, gilt lettering on front & spine.

William Ledyard Rodgers (b. February 4, 1860, Washington, D.C., United States d. May 7, 1944, Bethesda, Maryland) USN admiral and historian.

"Together with the strategic and tactical account of the wars there is an examination of what kinds of men-of-war nations had at various times in order to act as they are alleged to have done. ...The literary records as to ancient ships are supplemented by many archaeological remains: vase-paintings, wall paintings, mosaics, and sculptures; but, in spite of all these data, students disagree greatly as to what a triere (for example) was really like. As the practice of shipbuilding in the Mediterranean embodied a continuous tradition, we may with advantage draw inferences from the construction of medieval and later rowing ships of which we have full accounts, and apply these to earlier ships." -from the Preface.

Naturally, the worth of such attempts will be better evaluated by, and have more appealto, seamen and naval architects who know the sea and the traditions and pr inciples of naval architecture, than they will to historical students whoseknowledge of past maritime affairs is chiefly confined to casual mention o f them by writers who were more concerned with government and sociology." -from the Preface.
