I am currently researching information on WWI British dreadnoughts for a novel that I'm writing; I came across these forums during my search, and felt that some members might be able to help me out. The book in and of itself, other than a short scene, has very little to do with dreadnoughts, but I would still prefer it to be as accurate as possible. At the moment, the scene involves two characters sinking the ship by setting off an explosion below the deck in the stern.
Given that the ship is much like the HMS Warspite (03) and armed as if it were commissioned in WWI, how difficult would this be to pull off? Was there anything already in (or near) the stern that could aid two men in doing something like this (torpedoes, oil, coal)? In short, if such a feat is too outrageous, I want to scrap the idea right away—but am not knowledgeable enough to know if that is really the case.
I really appreciate the help,
