Excerpt from The Fighting Fleets: Five Months of Active Service With the American Destroyers and Their Allies in the War Zone

To command you is an honor, to work with you is a pleasure, to know you is to know the best traits of the anglo-saxon race.

Whatever the motives of the United States, to save democracy, to protect her own future, to smash the hateful ambitions of Germany, - the bold prediction of vice-admiral Sims has come true. It was in 1910 that he was stormily criticized in certain quarters at home for declaring at a Guild hall banquet: If the time ever comes when the British Empire is seriously menaced by an external enemy, it is my opinion that you may count upon every man, every dollar, and every drop of blood of your kindred across the sea.
