A bit of storytelling of the Naval Blunders by Paul Charlton (aka Mighty Jingles) after reading the book of Geoffrey Regan. His story can be read back on Wikipedia and other places as well.
For the book:
From the Admiral Popov, the circular Russian battleship that wouldn’t steer straight, to the HMS Trinidad, a British cruiser that managed to torpedo itself, this copiously illustrated collection of incompetence on the high seas takes a serious if often entertaining look at the misjudgments of captains, fleet commanders, and ship designers from Roman times to the present day. Full of jaw-dropping anecdotes, Great Naval Blunders proves the old adage, “Worse things happen at sea.”[source]
