Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Jeune École contains table of contents, acknowledgements and introduction. France and Great Britain were involved in an almost continuous naval rivalry and arms race from the 1840s to the mid-1860s. The French Navy came to see itself as having only one real opponent, the Royal Navy. The French became increasingly conscious of Great Britain’s enormous lead in industry, trade and colonization. The jeune école viewed Great Britain as the most probable enemy and argued that the French Navy should organise itself accordingly. The fundamental ideas of the jeune école were outlined as early as the mid-1870s.
