At he very start of the First World War Germany had 48 submarines built and had 29 that were functional.

In the first 10 weeks of the First World War Great Britain lost five cruiser ships to German U-Boats

Great Britain had 77 submarines at the start of the First World War operating in the Baltic and Atlantic Sea as well as the North Sea,Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
