Imperial German Navy:
The Kaiser built up his navy, once Wilhelm the second came to power and removed Otto Von Bismarck from power.
This made the British see competition and a small arms race of naval power began between the British and the Germans.
The British rely on their navy to control their overseas territories and trade.
The Kaiser saw his fleet as "precious" and "glorious.'' The only time the fleet was sent out was in the Battle of the North Sea (post already up on the Battle). The fleet went back to Port after the Battle never to be used again.
After the war the English took all German Ships from Port, and used them as firing practice. All ships were sunk I believe.
