Description:

694pp "During the last forty-nine years navies have increased more than a hundredfold in power; that is, in the amount of destructive power they can exert. This has been accomplished by utilizing the mechanical power of steam, electricity, gunpowder, and explosives, and by inventing instruments and methods with which to direct the mechanical power accurately at its objective. During all the time in which this increase in naval power was being accomplished I had the good fortune not only to be a close observer, but to contribute some essential parts. In fact, it has often been said to me that I did more to increase the power of navies than any other one man." very good, blue cloth (hardcover). Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from From Midshipman to Rear Admiral No other vocation gives a man such exciting and varied experiences as the navy. These experiences are caused mainly by the continual recurrence of danger in many forms; the frequent changes of locality, scene, climate and companions; the blending of the military with the nautical career; the combination of diplomatic and war like responsibilities; the handling of engines and mechanisms of all kinds; the conduct of tactical and strategic operations; and the continuous battle against the political influences that sap the strength of the nation. During the last forty-nine years navies have increased more than a hundredfold in power; that is, in the amount of destructive power they can exert. This has been accomplished by utilizing the mechanical power of steam, electricity, gunpowder, and explosives, and by inventing instruments and methods with which to direct the mechanical power accurately at its objective. During all the time in which this increase in naval power was being accomplished I had the good fortune not only to be a close observer, but to contribute some essential parts. In fact, it has often been said to me that I did more to increase the power of navies than any other one man. I realize that I am exposing myself to the charge of insubordination by relating certain incidents that occurred while I was aid for operations and afterwards.
