Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Durch eine Mitteilung an die neutralen Regierung verhängte Deutschland über England die totale Blockade. Englands Hungerwaffe traf nun England selbst. Ein deutsches U-Boot beginnt seine neue Feindfahrt."
Content: Title translates German picture caption
Content: Both Britain and Germany tried to starve each other's populations by means of naval blockades, Britain with surface ships and Germany with submarines. Each nation portrayed their actions as military justified and those of their enemy as underhanded and inhumane.
