• Der Seekrieg in der Adria 1914-1918

    Maritime operations in the Mediterranean and Adriatic during the First World War were sometimes considered and described in Anglo-American and German history books as secondary, although they were important not only for the states that lay on their coasts, but also for the fate of the great empires whose maritime traffic passed through these areas.
    The constant competition between the British Royal Navy and the then still new German Imperial Navy, whose emergence and rapid development posed a challenge to Great Britain as ruler of the seas, attracted attention to the operations in the North Sea and overshadowed events on other seas.
    In addition to the operations on the Adriatic Sea, some important operations in the Mediterranean, the Aegean, the Dardanelles and the Sea of Marmara are briefly described here, because they tied up numerous ships of the Entente and prevented their work on the Adriatic, which facilitated the situation of the Austro-Hungarian Navy.
