Admiral James Stavridis - Sailing True North: Ten Admirals and the Voyage of Character

Upcoming Event
Monday, October 21, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Stavridis devoted more than thirty years to the U.S. Navy, serving as Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and retiring as a four-star admiral. In this follow-up to his bestselling Sea Power, he sifts more than 2,500 years of maritime history to present the ten most exemplary naval leaders of all time. Selected not on the basis of achievement but of character, these figures—including Themistocles, Francis Drake, Horatio Nelson, and Grace Hopper—were neither perfect nor infallible. But as Stavridis shows in his vivid profiles, all have much to teach us today, from knowing when to listen to colleagues and when to strike out on your own to balancing action with reading and reflection.
