 "SEMI" Historical Battle & Campaign Kick off

The Battle of Heligoland Bight, fought August 28th  1914, was the first naval battle of the First World War, fought on 28 August 1914, between the United Kingdom and Imperial Germany.

In an attempt to balance the battle for playability the BRN sent 23 of their 33 Destroyers to the mouth of the Thames to search for

10 U-Boats that were reported there harassing shipping. The BRN then reassigned the HMS Dreadnought to the Assault force to make up for the loss of the 23 destroyers.

On the German side the SMS Konig which was doing Sea Trials in the Bight had her trials extend another week and thus her and her escorts were available to add the German cruisers in the Bight during the battle.

each centered 12 to 20" away from Heligoland island.
