ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts of the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island to adapt to the requirements of an era of relative military peace at the outset of the Cold War and Atomic Age. More specifically, the author explains shifts in the War College's implementation of naval strategy, tactics, and operations in light of the Cold War and advent of atomic weapons. The leadership of U.S. Admiral Raymond Spruance in the altering of U.S. naval policy, of which the War College was responsible for developing, is explained. Spruance's arguments against the consolidation of U.S. Navy and Army operations, voiced in the U.S. Senate, are given emphasis.
