Contains the funniest sentence I've ever read in a scholarly work: "Theodore Roosevelt spoke for a whole generation of men in many countries who found a mystical link between national glory, mental health, and deep sea navigation." Explains all when read in concert with Robert K. Massie's "Castles of Steel."
