The Action of 8 May 1918 was a small naval engagement which occurred off Algiers, North Africa during World War I. In the action, a United States Navy armed yacht and a Royal Navy destroyer encountered the German U-boat UB-70. Initially, the engagement was thought to be inconclusive, but later on the allied warships were credited with sinking the German submarine. On 16 April, the German U-boat UB-70-under a Kapit nleutnant named Johannes-left her home port in Germany for the Mediterranean Sea at the end of World War I.
