Dal grad Roger Thompson (MA’94) wrote a book titled ‘Lessons Not Learned: The US Navy’s Status Quo Culture‘ in 2007 which has recently garnered the attention and response from former Soviet Officer Andrei Martyanov. Martyanov, the author of Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning, stated that Thompson’s book is a very important and consequential book, which far from losing its relevance in the last 16 years only increased it and must be studied by those who do want to make a meaningful change to a very important and proud American institution.
