The Starvation Blockades

The blockades by the British Grand Fleet and on the other side by Germany's U-boats during the Great War not only disrupted the transportation of food, munitions and men, but dominated the relations between the belligerents and the neutrals, most significantly the United States. This graphic book deals with the early career of the German cruisers such as the Emden, the place of the great sea battles in the struggle, the shock of the sinking of the Lusitania, the consequences of interference with American trade, how the U-boats nearly won the war for Germany in spite of Q-ships and other desperate measures, the influence of British code-breaking, the decisive American intervention and the severe effects of the blockades. It will appeal to everyone with an interest in the outcome of World War I.
