A. T. Mahan

a.k.a. Alfred Thayer Mahan, Captain A.T. Mahan

Author Code: AATM

Born: Sep. 27, 1840 - West Point, New York, USA

Died: Dec. 1, 1914 - Washington D.C., USA

Educated at Saint James School in Maryland, Columbia University and the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Mahan graduated second in his class in 1859. He was commissioned as a lieutenant in 1861, serving in the Civil War for the Union and also teaching at the Naval Academy. He rose through the ranks to Captain in 1885, but it was his academic work that was of greater importance and he became one of the most influential naval historians. That year he was appointed lecturer at the Naval War College and the following year became its president. He retired from the Navy in 1896 and concentrated on writing history, primarily of sea power, and produced a number of much respected volumes over the ensuing years. He received numerous honorary degrees and awards during his career and was promoted to rear admiral (Ret.) in 1906. His works include The Gulf and Inland Waters (1883), The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, 1660-1783 (1890), The Life of Nelson (1897), Lessons of the War With Spain, and Other Articles (1899), Story of the War in South Africa, 1899-1900 (1900), Sea Power in Its Relation to the War of 1812 (1905), From Sail to Steam, Recollections of Naval Life (1907), Naval Strategy (1911) and The Major Operations of the Navies in the War of American Independence (1913).
