Danger prowled under both the cold gray waters of the North Sea and the shimmering blue waves of the tropical Atlantic during World War II as Adolf Hitler´s Third Reich attempted to strangle Allied shipping lanes with U-boat attacks. German and British submarines combed the vast oceanic battlefield for prey, while scientists developed new technologies and countermeasures. Submarine warfare began tentatively during the American Civil War (though the Netherlands and England made small prototypes centuries earlier, and the American sergeant Ezra Lee piloted the one-man Turtle vainly against HMS Eagle near New York in 1776). Britisher Robert Whitehead´s invention of the torpedo introduced the weapon later used most frequently by submarines. Steady improvements to Whitehead´s design led to the military torpedoes deployed against shipping during both World Wars. World War I witnessed the First Battle of the Atlantic, when the Kaiserreich unleashed its U-boats against England. During the war´s 52.5 months, the German submarines sent much of the British merchant marine to the bottom. Indeed, German reliance on U-boats in both World War I and World War II stemmed largely from their nation´s geography. The Germans eventually recognized the primacy of the Royal Navy and its capacity to blockade Germany´s short coastline in the event of war. While the British could easily interdict surface ships, submarines slipped from their Kiel or Hamburg anchorages unseen, able to prey upon England´s merchant shipping. During World War I, German U-boats operated solo except on one occasion. Initially, the British and nations supplying England with food and materiel scattered vessels singly across the ocean, making them vulnerable to the lone submarines. However, widespread late war re-adoption of the convoy system tipped the odds in the surface ships´ favor, as one U-boat skipper described: ´´The oceans at once became bare and ∅ for long periods at a time the U 1.

El peligro merodeó bajo las aguas frías y grises del Mar del Norte y también bajo las brillantes olas azules del Atlántico tropical durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, cuando el Tercer Reich de Hitler intentaba estrangular las líneas de suministro de los Aliados con ataques de U-Boot (abreviatura del alemán Unterseeboot - plural U-Boote). Submarinos alemanes y británicos peinaban el vasto campo de batalla oceánico en busca de presas, mientras los científicos desarrollaban nuevas tecnologías y contramedidas.La guerra submarina comenzó tentativamente durante la Guerra Civil estadounidense (aunque los Países Bajos e Inglaterra habían hecho pequeños prototipos siglos atrás, y el sargento estadounidense Ezra Lee pilotó en vano el monoplaza Turtle contra el HMS Eagle cerca de Nueva York en 1776). La invención del torpedo por parte del británico Robert Whitehead introdujo el arma que sería luego usada con más frecuencia por los submarinos. Mejoramientos continuos al diseño de Whitehead conllevaron a los torpedos militares que fueron desplegados contra las rutas marítimas de envío durante ambas Guerras Mundiales.La Primera Guerra Mundial fue testigo de la Primera Batalla del Atlántico, cuando el Imperio Alemán (Kaiserreich) desató sus U-Boote contra Inglaterra. A lo largo de los 52.5 meses que duró la guerra, los submarinos alemanes enviaron buena parte de la marina mercante británica al fondo del océano. De hecho, la dependencia alemana en los U-Boote tanto en la Primera como en la Segunda Guerra Mundial provenía principalmente de la geografía de su nación. Los alemanes finalmente reconocieron la superioridad de la Marina Real británica (Royal Navy) y su capacidad de bloquear la corta costa alemana en el evento de una guerra. Mientras que los británicos podían interceptar buques de superficie fácilmente, los submarinos salían subrepticiamente de sus ancladeros en Kiel o Hamburgo sin ser detectados, capaces así de atacar 1.

Submarine warfare began tentatively during the American Civil War (though the Netherlands and England made small prototypes centuries earlier, and the American sergeant Ezra Lee piloted the one-man ´´Turtle´´ vainly against HMS Eagle near New York in 1776). Robert Whitehead´s invention of the torpedo introduced the weapon later used most frequently by submarines. Steady improvements to Whitehead´s design led to the military torpedoes deployed against shipping during both World Wars. World War I witnessed the First Battle of the Atlantic, when the Kaiserreich unleashed its U-boats against England. During the war, the German submarines sent much of the British merchant marine to the bottom. Indeed, German reliance on U-boats in both World War I and World War II stemmed largely from their nation´s geography. The Germans eventually recognized the superiority of the Royal Navy and its capacity to blockade Germany´s short coastline in the event of war. While the British could easily interdict surface ships, submarines slipped from their Kiel or Hamburg anchorages unseen, able to prey upon England´s merchant shipping. The sleek hunter-killers lurking beneath the waves, using periscopes to close in unnoticed on their prey, added a new, nerve-wracking element to naval warfare. The mere threat of submarine attack immediately altered naval tactics and strategies employed by both the Western Allies and the Central Powers, shifting them towards a more cautious approach, especially at the war’s start when the submarine threat remained untested. During World War I, German U-boats operated solo except on one occasion. Initially, the British and nations supplying England with food and materiel scattered vessels singly across the ocean, making them vulnerable to the lone submarines.
