Sinopsis:

The Great White Fleet and its world cruise played a part in the development of the modern US navy. In the early 1880s, the US navy was smaller and less seaworthy than Peru's; its technology was obsolete; and its value as an instrument of American foreign policy was nonexistent. By 1909 it was second only to the Royal Navy in size and firepower. This work describes this development in US history from Theodore Roosevelt's decision in 1880 to write "The Naval War of 1812", to the triumphant return of his Great White Fleet in 1909 from its world voyage.
