Product description


"The most profound study of Jutland this reviewer has ever read." Antony Preston. (Warship)

'Explosive' (Navy News)

Book Description

This work describes the course of the Battle of Jutland in May 1916. At the same time, it shows why the battle became a source of controversy, as the author reveals conflicting styles of command, a Victorian suffocation of Nelsonic values, and pragmatism overwhelmed by vested peacetime interests.
