|German Commerce raiders and Auxiliary Cruisers. Armed passenger Liners have been used in navies since the days of the American Civil war. The German Imperial Navy, before the outbreak of World war one, requested that the major German Ocean Liner and shipping companies. produce their new ships with special requirements, so that in case of war they could easily be converted to take Armament. (this would mean strengthening the deck area where the guns were to be placed.)|
