German U-Boat Departing For ba

Synopsis: This silent German newsreel shows World War I U-boats preparing for war patrols, and departing for combat, and then sinking vessels on the high seas. Some of the rare images in this film include a U-boat stopping a sailing vessel in the Atlantic, forcing the crew to abandon ship and then sinking the enemy vessel. This type of \"gallant\" warfare would be replaced by less kind methods -- unrestricted submarine warfare.
