  • The escape of the Goeben and the Breslau from Arbuthnotīs 4 ship armoured cruiser squadron at the Straits of Otranto. The cruisers were blocking the Goeben and the Breslau from entering the Adriatic.

    But then the Goeben and the Breslau went to Stanboul, and Turkey joined the Central Powers.

                  • This was one of the more tragic campaigns in this war. Christopher Craddock had been sent out to destroy the best shooting ships in the German navy with the Good Hope and the Monmouth, but they were outgunned and sunk by Vice Admiral Maximillian von Spee's Sharnhorst and Gneisenau, and then von Spee's squadron were outgunned and sunk by the Invincible and Inflexible at the battle of the Falkland Islands Version 1.0. But this campaign probably deserves a thread of its own. There are books on it, references available on request.
