  1. It occurs to that the old wooden Man-O-War ships had a critical weakness in the rear. If a enemy ship could get behind and rake her with cannonfire, the damage would be tremendous. So that makes me question why they didn't heavily armor the stern of these old warships? A thin layer of glass was no defence against cannonshot so why didn't they just slap on 3 feet worth of armor on the stern instead? Did the windows have a function that I am not familiar with? The feature seemed to be dropped by the Pre-Dreadnought era though. Even the Ironclads had windows in the back.
