Transcript of DELANEY NYSTROM

German U-Boat Attacks
Delaney Nystrom
A U-Boat is a German submarine used in WWI or WWII.

U-boat stands for underseeboot or undersea boat.
U-BOATS
Germany was not the first country to use the boats, but they were the first to successfully use them in war.

They were unique because they had the ability to change their bouyancey, which gives them the ability to sink or float.
USES
The U-Boat, packed with force, was often considered a torpedo boat.

They used the boats ability to go below the surface for surprise attacks that would throw the opponent.
The ships were so effective because the opponent couldn't predict when a submarine attack was coming.

Today, we can track and monitor the location of submarines which gives us an advantage in battle today.

WHY IT WORKED
To British ships, nothing was more terrifying than the U-Boat.

Germany was able to sink over 5000 ships only using the submarines.
Although Germany had a relatively small navy, their use of modern technology improved their chances of success.

They brought war away from diesel engine battleships and towards the modern era of submarine warfare.
TECHNOLOGY
Germany was able to sink 5000 ships with just the U-Boats.

Some of these included british battleships such as the HMS Pathfinder and HMS Formidable.
