This page was last edited on 13 March , at The story correctly anticipates the U-boat strategy which Germany would use in both World Wars to target ships bringing the foodstuffs Britain was unable to produce domestically. As would be confirmed by the events, the story forecast the need for the attackers to also target American ships bringing supplies to Britain - even at the price of violating International Law - forcing the British to introduce rationing among their population.
At the time numerous popular writings portrayed England facing Germany in an upcoming war. A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns Doyle's story is another example of this genre of invasion literature. Doyle uses a particular stylistic technique to evoke emotion in British readers, making them more receptive to the writer's warnings: Norland is depicted as a North European country, with a shore on the North Sea.
It seems to be linguistically Germanic - " Norrland " and " Nordland " are the names of a region in Sweden and a county in Norway, respectively, and Norland's main port is Blankenberg , the name of several actual German cities. Norland is, however, not Germany, which is mentioned as neutral in the war, though Germans are depicted as sympathetic to Norland's cause. Norland has a colonial empire, and a border dispute with a British colony, exacerbated by the death of two missionaries, is the direct cause of the war.
Norland is a monarchy whose monarch seems to retain actual executive power; the crucial policy meeting in which it is resolved to defy a British ultimatum and embark on submarine warfare is attended by the king, the foreign secretary, an admiral, and Captain Sirius; a prime minister is conspicuously absent.
