A look inside the next issue of Canadian Naval Review

The contents for the fall issue of Canadian Naval Review (Vol. 9, No. 3) have now been finalized. We’re pleased to start the fall issue with the winning essay of the 2013 Bruce S. Oland Essay Competition. An interview with the new Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy examines the opportunities and challenges facing the navy of the present while Peter Haydon examines the challenges from the era of Defence Minister Paul Hellyer. Another article examines the French approach to maritime security, and commentaries discuss the need for industrial participation in planning for the future, and the US Coast Guard’s use of Game Theory to make operational planning more effective.
