Merriam Press Historical Fiction 1 (2013). Early one morning in September 1914, a new and terrible weapon changed naval warfare forever. On that morning, a single primitive German submarine sank 3 British armored cruisers, killing nearly 1500 men. Before that, few people knew submarines even existed. Overnight, terror swept England. At the beginning of WWI, England's Royal Navy had the greatest fleet of warships the world had ever seen. Suddenly, because of one submarine's successful attack, the Royal Navy's supremacy was in question. Savage criticism rained down on the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill. People are interested in events that changed the world, but few people know of this incident. It is a story that deserves to be told. With the approach of the centennial of WWI, now is the time to tell this story. Although this book is a work of fiction, it hews closely to historical events.
