BATTLE OF JUTLAND

BATTLE OF JUTLAND  
A classic account of Jutland, the greatest Sea battle of the Great War, when Germany's High Seas Fleet inflicted severe losses on Britain's Grand Fleet, but suffered a strategic defeat that kept them bottled up in port for the rest of the war.
At the end of May 1916, a chance encounter with Admiral Hipper's battlecruisers enabled Admiral Beatty to lead the whole German High Seas Fleet into the jaws of Jellicoe's greatly superior Grand Fleet, but darkness allowed Admiral Scheer to extricate his ships from a potentially disastrous situation. Though inconclusive, and with more British ships and men lost than their enemy, at Jutland the German Fleet suffered so much damage that it made no further attempt to challenge the Grand Fleet, and the British blockade remained unbroken. Distinguished Naval historian Captain Geoffrey Bennett has used sources previously unavailable to historians in his reconstruction of this controversial battle, including the papers of Vice-Admiral Harper explaining why his official record of the battle was not published until 1927, and the secret "Naval Staff Appreciation" of 1922 whose criticism were so scathing that it was never issued to the Fleet. Also included are numerous battle plans, photographs and an introduction by Bennett's son Rodney Bennett.
