Product description


'Explosive' (Navy News)

Anyone who is interested in warfare or the Royal Navy should read this stunningly original account of the 1916 Battle of Jutland and "the reasons why". Gordon is a compelling storyteller, and his weighty tome should frighten no one. It is a classic of the genre. (Sir Max Hastings, Evening Standard 'Paperback of t)

For all naval historians, riveting reading (Christopher Andrew, Sunday Telegraph)

The Rules of the Game is the best book I have read for months ... Gordon researches brilliantly and writes compellingly. His fans are now clamouring for him to write another big book. He is much too good to be allowed to rest on his laurels. (The Spectator)

They don't come much better than this (Alan Judd)

A superb study of military culture (Jeremy Black, History Today)

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

For those who love the epic of sea power ... unputdownable (William Waldegrave)

Does far more than just chart the Battle of Jutland (The Times)

A marvellous work ... a rare combination of major substance and easy accessibility (Jon Sumida, American Neptune)

Book Description

A fascinating exploration of a devastating conflict in command styles during the Battle of Jutland
