How and why has amphibious warfare shaped world civilization whilst simultaneously adapting to external forces? These forces include technology, state formation, commercial expansion and industrialization. Learn how strategy, operations, tactics, technology and logistics affected the evolution of amphibious operations in 20th century warfare.

Topics Covered:

  • How amphibious warfare has mutated and redefined itself, particularly in relation to other forms of warfare (i.e., naval and land warfare) over the centuries.

  • Why the demise of amphibious operations, predicted by some after 1945, has to the contrary witnessed new forms of amphibious warfare that will be crucial to the maintenance of global security in the 21st century.
