Conquering the Crusher

The Advanced Tactical Course, also known as "The Crusher" is one of the most rigorous programs undertaken by Royal Manticoran Navy personnel and is essentially required if one wants to go on to major starship command. In TRMN, the ATC is open to chapter CO's, XO's, and anyone who has completed all the mainline rank courses offered by their branch. Students can choose to analyze a battle from the Honorverse or one from real-world Naval History. Less than 20 members have completed the ATC to date, but ATC Commandant, Captain of the List Steven Firestine, and Rear Admiral Mike Romero of Third Fleet hope to change that. We will give you all the info you need on how to complete the course, offer advice and answer questions, and RADM Romero will present excerpts from his own ATC project on the Battle of the Nile.
