Book Description

The one and only major naval engagement of the First World War stands alone in the history of Warfare afloat. It is a curious battle to study as a German tactical victory, but rather a British strategic victory. Colonel Buchan wrote his volume study of the battle from an enviable position as a high ranking intelligence officer, having access to much of the detail from the allied side. He divided the action into four distinct phases as the battle ships and cruisers manoeuvred for position and the shells rained among them. One of the finest British authors of the age, he also wrote copious numbers of books on the First World War, of particular note the 24 volume “Nelson’s” history.

a good narrative but miles to short to tell the full story of this great battle, probably the last large scale battle at sea

I have read it from cover to cover and can say that although it covers the battle fairly well. It could go into more depth in certain areas.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Era Past 15 Dec. 2013
By D. J. Leedham - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A straight forward account of the battle. Kindle's biggest limitation is that it doesn't handle maps at all well. You have to go to other sources (google) for that. -- There's the account of the battle. Really, it was the last time the old (Nelson) style ship/fleet battle took place. So for this it is worth reading. A nice flavor of the times. -- You need to look elsewhere for the various interpretations of whether the Brits actually "won" this one. End of an era. After this the final great sea battles were in the Pacific and made Nimitz and Halsey and Spruance the last great commanders in the tradition we often associate with the British Navy.

There are other accounts that implicate the British command structure prevalent at that time. (The Germans escaped, (a) because the British fleet turned AWAY when the German destroyers put up a screen and the German fleet snuck behind and the Ship's officer who saw this could do nothing about it because the command structure was rigid and did not permit independent initiative. (Compare with Spruance and Nimitz later, in the Pacific expecting their local commanders to use their initiative consistent with overall objectives.)

Worth the price. Just for the account and the historical flavor of the account.
3.0 out of 5 stars Could have had more depth and background but sure covered the overall battle 7 Dec. 2014

Good overview but not too much on details of the nitty gritty of the fight. Couldn't smell the gunpowder in other words.
