Summary

In April 1917, German U-boats were sinking a dozen British ships every day and Admiral of the Fleet Jellicoe warned that Britain might not be able to carry on fighting into 1918. In the second of this two-part series examining Scotland's role in the First World War's naval campaign, David Hayman explores the threat posed by submarines and the ploys Britain used against them.
