The Return of U-9
The Return of U-9

This German print depicts celebrations surrounding the return to base of the German submarine U-9 after it sank three British warships in the North Sea.

U-9 sank the cruisers HMS Aboukir, HMS Cressy, and HMS Hogue on the morning of 22 September 1914, killing more than 1,400 British sailors. The attack, which took place in the waters between England and the Netherlands, was a clear warning to Allied navies that U-Boats posed a serious threat, even to large, well-armed warships.
