Warfare has changed, yet the classics of strategic thought endure. From the triremes and hoplites of ancient Greece to the Special Forces in 21st-century Philippines, strategy is the process by which political objectives are translated into military action—using the means at a nation's disposal to compel an enemy to bend to its political will. Whether it is Mahan's ideas about global basing or Corbett's thinking on integrated operations, key thinkers such as these have had profound impacts on the world's navies during the 20th century. At the same time, rising maritime powers look to the classics that led to the development of modern navies. This panel examines the foundational theories of sea power that influenced the maritime strategies of the great powers of the 20th century and considers the relevance of these theories for the maritime strategies of China, India and the United States in the 21st century.
