Chapter Summary

After the fall of the Goblet cabinet Théophile Aube retired to provincial life for the last three years of his life, and there was no one with his capacity ready to represent and develop further the ideas of the jeune école. The early 1890s, however, saw a revival of theoretical discussions among naval officers that were strongly inspired by Aube and Charmes. The first radical ministry to take office during the Third Republic, that of Léon Bourgeois in November 1895, and the appointment of the civilian politician Edouard Lockroy as Minister of Marine, represented the return to power of the jeune école. The jeune école’s prominent position on the curriculum of the college was primarily due to the fact that the jeune école represented the only coherent alternative naval theory to that of the traditionalists.
