I’m re-reading the book, Battleship at War, by Ivan Musicant. It’s the story of the USS Washington and its exploits during World War Two. One fascinating episode is how the ship changes from a peacetime footing to a wartime footing. It happens quickly and quite by accident. But, it was a critical change, one that probably saved many lives on-board ship. You see, there’s a peacetime way of doing business and there’s a wartime way and the two are nothing alike. The peacetime way is inefficient and cumbersome. The wartime way is generally the most efficient.
