A change-up this week - Midrats will be today, Saturday at 5pm EST/1700R/2200Z.

EagleOne and me as we extend last week's discussion on Multilateralism at Sea with a discussion of International Navies.

Our guests will be Eric Wertheim and Jerry Hendrix.

Eric Wertheim is a defense consultant, columnist and author specializing in naval and air force issues. He was named to the helm of the internationally acknowledged, one volume Naval Institute reference
Naval Institute Guide to Combat Fleets of the World in 2002.

He served as a speechwriter for senior Pentagon officials and and from 1994 through 2004 wrote the bimonthly "Lest We Forget" column on historic U.S. warships for the Naval Institute's
Proceedings magazine.

Since 2004, Eric has written the monthly "Combat Fleets" column for
Proceedings, and his annual review of world navies runs in the March issue of the magazine. He is the coauthor with Norman Polmar of the books, Chronology of the Cold War at Sea and Dictionary of Military Abbreviations, both published by the Naval Institute Press.

Our second guest will be Commander Henry J. Hendrix, Jr., USN, author of
Theodore Roosevelt's Naval Diplomacy: The U.S. Navy and the Birth of the American Century, the 2009 Proceedings article, Buy Fords, Not Ferraris, and a follow-up article in this month's edition, Less Henderson, More Bonds.
