Commerce Raiding

There is surprisingly little written on this topic outside of selected monographs on certain ships. To partially remedy this lacuna in the historical record, Commerce Raiding: Historical Case Studies, 1755-2009 was published. As the introduction states: “As a military tactic, commerce raiding has time after time proved itself a most efficient way to exert pressure on an opponent. A few scholars have placed these events in their social, political, and naval contexts, but their studies have been the exception, not the rule. For this reason, this collection should fill a major gap in the academic literature.”(1) A select bibliography adds to the usefulness of this work.
