In the closing months of the First World War, German U-boats launched an attack on the American coast in a last ditch effort to slow the flood of troops and supplies heading to the Western Front. In The Kaiser Strikes America, Peter Ericson tells the story of the forgotten time when enemy warships prowled within sight of U.S. cities, and sank ships outside the country's largest ports. This is a fascinating story of an almost forgotten aspect of the Great War, which proved to be a harbinger of the even more deadly attacks of World War Two.
