This is the second of Dr Tony Heathcote’s biographical dictionaries of what are sometimes called ‘five star officers’. For the Royal Navy, this means Admirals of the Fleet, those commanders whose privilege it was to fly the Union Flag in their flagship, and, in modern times, to serve on the Active List of Officers for life. The rank is currently in abeyance and, under normal circumstances, no more holders of this historic rank will be appointed.

  • Who were the admirals who guided the navy though the Civil War? Who led the way to the fleet that defeated Spain in the Spanish-American War? And who in between those events influenced the thinking and development of American force projection? It was the men listed in Dictionary of Admirals of the U.S. Navy, Vol. 1: 1862-1900. The flag officers whose impact on naval strategic thinking are all here in the book and whether you are a historian or just have an interest in the period this is a handy reference to have.

  • Very good book

  • These are the only reference works of their kind about the subject material covered, and to say they were long overdue is an understatement. Anyone interested in naval biography will find them indispensable. As one interested in the study of the holders of naval flag rank, I only wish Prof. Cogar had chosen to include the Commodores as well.

    In Volume 1 (1862-1900), Prof. Cogar traces the careers of 211 Admirals, with photos of each, that would be difficult to find anywhere else. In the interest of completeness, however, it must be noted that a 212th Admiral was somehow overlooked, and that was Charles Boarman (1795-1879). Boarman had been placed on the retired list of Rear Admirals on March 4, 1879, with rank from August 15, 1876.

    Volume 2 (1901-1918) continues the series thru World War I.

    Several more volumes in the series were planned, as well as one embracing the Marine Corps, but unfortunately these are apparently not forthcoming from the publisher (Naval Institute Press).
