If the German Fleet never experienced the joy of a great sea victory enemy torpedo-boats at least enjoyed the exhilaration of sea-power in upholding neutral steamers. Frequently Dutch craft came under this surveillance in the North Sea and such an incident is illustrated above. German submarine raiders about to shell a peaceful liner on the high sea. With feverish haste the gun is being brought to bear on the steamer and perhaps a torpedo was being launched simultaneously. The German commander was giving orders from the conning-tower. (From an enemy painting.) EASY PREY FOR THE MANGER TORPEDO CRAFT AND SUB MARINE.
