For more than two decades William S. Sims was at the forefront of naval affairs. From the revolution in naval gunnery to his development of torpedo boat and destroyer operations, he was a central figure in preparing the U.S. Navy for World War I. During the war, he served as the senior naval commander in Europe and was instrumental in the establishment of the convoy system For more than two decades William S. Sims was at the forefront of naval affairs. From the revolution in naval gunnery to his development of torpedo boat and destroyer operations, he was a central figure in preparing the U.S. Navy for World War I. During the war, he served as the senior naval commander in Europe and was instrumental in the establishment of the convoy system. Following the war his leadership as president of the Naval War College established the foundation of the creative and innovative Navy that developed the operating concepts for submarines and aircraft carriers leading up to World War II. Despite his dramatic impact on the U.S. Navy, Sims' books and articles are often overlooked.

    Ben does an outstanding job of reviewing the material on Adm. William Sims. Sims was an exceptional leader and thinker who was lightyears ahead of his contemporaries. Cassandra

    21st Century Sims is an easy read that shares a concrete examples of innovation, a military mindset, preparing for command and war, status quo/conservatism, and the peace dividend. Sims provides his perspectives on character, a "practical man," and wargaming as a decision making exercise - all of which are just as applicable today as they were a century ago. BJ Armstrong did a great job compiling Sim's articles and speeches into a coherent book including a brief commentary to begin each chapter. 21st Century Sims is an easy read that shares a concrete examples of innovation, a military mindset, preparing for command and war, status quo/conservatism, and the peace dividend.
