In Britain and elsewhere, the North Sea was commonly known as the 'German Ocean' until the early 20th century. That changed after the First World War, when the name became politically unacceptable in Britain. The North Sea is a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean located between Great Britain, Denmark, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
