More Info:
  • The Action of 22 September 1914 was an engagement in the North Sea where 3 obsolete British cruisers, referred to as the "livebait squadron" were sunk by 1 German U-Boat. Over 1,450 sailors died, and there was public outcry. The action, with the Battle of Coronel, eroded the confidence and reputation of the Government & Royal Navy at a time when many nations were still considering which side to support. After the action, U-boats were finally taken seriously by both the British and Germans.
