The Battle of Jutland was the last occasion when the Royal Navy engaged in a full Fleet action with an equivalent enemy. The clash of the Grand Fleet with Germany’s High Seas Fleet in the North Sea midway through the First World War had been long awaited by both sides. But in the event, the mighty battle of TItans proved so indecisive than no-one was sure who had won. The Germans claimed victory because they had lost fewer ships and less men. Britain trumpeted a triumph because after the battle the bruised Germans never ventured out of port again and the war-winning British blockade around her ports tightened. This book is Britain’s official account of Jutland – the despatches from the Admirals and Captains who fought the battle which enabled them to declare – if not a second Trafalgar – at least a strategic victory. An exhaustively detailed account which provides enough ammunition for students of Jutland to fight the great battle all over again.
