A Historical Association and University of Plymouth History department talk.
In the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, British strategic thinkers confronted a shifting international order as new rivals emerged on the world’s oceans. While the theories of sea power developed by the likes of Julian Stafford Corbett remain familiar today, the ideas of Corbett and his contemporaries about collaboration between states are less well-known. This talk from Dr Louis Halewood explores the visions of theorists including Corbett and Halford John Mackinder for international naval co-operation to enforce peace before and during the First World War.
Louis is a historian of sea power and naval history in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries who joined the University of Plymouth in 2019. He is currently researching the role of sea power and international naval co-operation in visions of world order between 1890 and 1919, culminating in the creation of the League of Nations. He teaches maritime history modules such as World War I at Sea and Sea Power in History and is currently working on a book based on his PhD.
