    Condorcet was one of the six Danton class semi-dreadnought battleships built for the French Navy in the mid-1900s. When World War I began in August 1914, she unsuccessfully searched for the German battlecruiser SMS Goeben and the light cruiser SMS Breslau in the Western and?Central Mediterranean. Later that month, the ship participated in the Battle of Antivari in the?Adriatic Sea?and helped to sink an Austro-Hungarian protected cruiser. Condorcet spent most of the rest of the war blockading the Straits of Otranto and the?Dardanelles?to keep German, Austro-Hungarian and Turkish warships bottled up.
