The Action of 21 May 1918 was a naval engagement of World War I fought between an American armed yacht and a German submarine in the Atlantic Ocean off Spain. In May 1918, the Great War had been raging for four years and the Germans were making every attempt possible to sink enemy shipping which fueled the war in Europe. On 24 May 1918, the fight was still at hand when USS Christabel-under Lieutenant Commander M. B. McCord-sighted a distinctive oil slick while escorting the slow British steamer Danse north from La Pallice to Quiberon Bay.
