Silly Website

Was Britain's WWI Blockade The First Atrocity Of The 20th Century?

"introduced the world to a terrifying new kind of warfare."  Blockades.  Effective ones.  Ones that caused civilians to suffer

Uh, the US's Anaconda Plan? Before that the Brits in Napoleonic Wars?  Those were incidents of blockades doing a famn dine job in the same way.  And the U-Boat cordon around the British Islands by the Germans

Commenters there bring up that this wasn't even the first atrocity of Britain's in the 20th C.
