This Day in the History of Germans Beating Up on the British

On this day in 1914, in the North Sea, the German U-9 submarine sank three British cruisers, the Aboukir, the Hogue, and the Cressy, in just over one hour. The one-sided battle cost 1,400 British sailors their lives, and the Germans lost none. Rough day to be a British sailor.
