US Navy performer worse during manoeuvres according to the Dutch magazine Marineblad 1934 no. 7

An item referred to the Proceedings dated October 1934 reporting that the US Navy performed far from perfect during the latest manoeuvres and common exercises. As main causes were mentioned insufficient seamanship, obvious lacking of capability of the personnel and exaggeration of the mutual competition between the ships.
