*The Battle of Dogger Bank – After the German Navy’s initial success raiding the British coastline in December of 1914, German forces attempted to initiate another raid in late January 1915. British warships however intercepted the Germans on January 24th 1914 at Dogger Bank, a large sandbank in the North Sea. Outnumbered, the German cruisers attempted to flee but the British ships caught up and sunk the SMS Blucher. The rest of the German boats however were able to escape.
