Description:
German submarine U-14 was a Type IIB U-boat of the German Kriegsmarine during World War II. It served with 3rd U-boat Flotilla from January 18, 1936 to October 31, 1939. U-14 completed six wartime patrols and sank nine ships totalling 12,344 Gross Register Tonnage.

Early in the war, on 3 September 1939, U-14 attacked a Polish submarine and claimed to have sunk it. In reality the Polish submarine, , was not damaged as the torpedo launched by U-14 exploded prematurely.

After serving six operational patrols, U-14 was used as a training boat, and transferred to U-boat training flotillas, serving with 23rd U-boat Flotilla and 24th U-boat Flotilla until the end of the war. Despite the high casualties suffered by the Unterseebootwaffen (German submarine arm), U-14 suffered no known casualties during the War. U-14 was scuttled on May 2, 1945 at Wilhelmshaven.
