Outrage at Sea

This, the follow-up to Naval Atrocities in World War 2, is an anthology of shameful incidents at sea, causing outrage on both sides. The sinking of the Lusitania was the trigger of these events, which were played out, at least initially, while an anguished and undecided America looked on. Later in the War, the Hospital Ships, carrying wounded troops home from the theatres of war, became controversial targets for U-Boats. The treatment of U-Boat crews by Allied navies was itself at times hugely controversial. At the end of it all, the world's first ever War Crimes Trials were held at Leipzig in farcical conditions.
