Excerpt from The Elements of Navigation: A Short and Complete Explanation of the Standard Methods of Finding the Position of a Ship at Sea and the Course to Be Steered; Designed for the Instruction of Beginners The history of the three years 1914 to 1917 has been made with astounding rapidity and no part of it has been more absorbing than that dealing with naval Operations.
