Why were the smaller porthole windows added after the war? Those larger rectangular ones looked much better.

Alex the officers felt that more height was needed to see over Aquitania's long prow. So a bridge was constructed one deck higher than the original bridge. This new bridge was also half the size of the original design. Additionaly this change was acomplished early on in her life, I believe she had this new bridge from the early stages of the war.
