Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Proceedings of the United States Naval Institute, Vol. 23

States, but it may be remarked in this connection that whatever arguments have been advanced in other countries in favor of torpedo-boats, either in reference to their use with the squadron as circumstances indicated, or to the special features of the coast which might lend themselves to torpedo-boat operations, apply with if anything greater force to the case of the United States.

It has been held abroad that torpedo-boats are the weapon of the weaker naval power. A power that is strong in ships will be able to bring commanding numbers against the ships of a weaker enemy. She has no imperative need for many torpedo boats. On the other hand, the weaker power here finds its opportunity. The latter requires torpedo-boats, the former tor pedo-boat destroyers. Continuing the argument, a nation which may be attacked by superior numbers on its own coast may find the torpedo-boat a weapon of the greatest value.

But it is when the natural features of our coast are considered that the argument in favor of torpedo - boats presents itself in the strongest light. 'the extent and configuration of the coast, and especially the amount of inland-water navigation, seem to make the torpedo-boat a weapon peculiarly suited to our special requirements.
