SM U-8 was one of the 329 submarines serving in the Imperial German Navy in World War I. U-8 was engaged in the naval warfare and took part in the First Battle of the Atlantic. Caught in nets and forced to scuttle under fire, it sunk in the English Channel. In November 2017, as part of a virtual web tour, we were commissioned to create reconstructions of the submarine, which you can find above.
