Commodore is used in many navies for officers whose position exceeds that of a navy captain, but is less than that of a rear admiral. Sometimes referred to as a 'one star' and was effectively discontinued by the United States around 1899 but revived during WWII, mainly as a title given to a senior captain of a squadron.
