Germans sink 2 American 3 Norwegian and 1 Spanish ships in this “Blockade”
*German Naval Blockade of 1915 – On February 4th of 1915 Germany officially declared a naval blockade of Britain. They stated that the waters around Great Britain and Ireland were now a war zone and that after February 18th any merchant ship in the region would be destroyed. This declaration was quickly protested by the Americans who traded with Britain but had not yet entered the war. Due to this protest the Germans withdrew the declaration. However it was restated in 1917 and soon after the U.S. joined the war effort.
