Warrior Writers: 1980s

December 04, 2015

Welcome to the Naval Academy Museum Warrior Writers podcast, hosted by Sal from the blog "CDR Salamander."

This week's episode will focus on the US Navy in the 1980s, dominated by the drive to the 600 ship navy and the last two acts of the Cold War.

This 14-part series will take you decade by decade, starting with the 1870s, discussing the significant naval events and developments that helped shape the US Navy.

The podcast will coincide with the Naval Academy Museum: "Warrior Writers: The U.S. Naval Institute" open from September 10, 2015 through January 31, 2016.

Our guest for each episode leading us through the decades will be Naval Academy History Professor Emeritus and noted naval historian Dr. Craig Symonds, and Naval Academy Museum Director Claude Berube.
