Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...of such mishaps must be directly proportional to the number of units; or, what comes to the same, the percentage absences or losses in a fleet, whether measured in tonnage or in units, must be the same in case of small as in case of large ships. If, in a squadron of eight ships, one ship is liable to be disabled during a certain period of time, it is probable that two out of a squadron of sixteen ships of half the size would be disabled in the same period. The percentage loss will be the same in either case. It may be argued that larger vessels are more liable to run aground than smaller on account of their greater draught, and that they are more exposed to collisions due to their inferior maneuvering qualities, but these drawbacks are probably more than offset by the fact that a smaller number of larger vessels can be better equipped for navigation both as regards personnel and materiel, and can be more minutely subdivided. The materiel can be better safeguarded against accidents and breakdowns. It is concluded that on the whole the risks incident to navigation and ordinary service are not enhanced by going to large displacements. As regards the risks peculiar to war conditions, the intensity of attack, to which warships are exposed, will be in a broad sense directly proportional to their size, because, again, the number of units is reduced in the same ratio as that in which the displacement is increased. Larger ships, therefore, would be more liable to damage and destruction than smaller, unless the means of protection and defense can be developed and strengthened in the same measure as the intensity of attack is increased, but this, in fact, appears to be quite feasible. The degree of protection that can be obtained by passive means, ..
