This review is from: Jutland, 1916: Death in the Grey Wastes (Paperback)
Great book! Really brings the ominous physical presence of these ships to life and goes a long way to building your appreciation and visualisation of the unique events that took place at Jutland. You are not long appreciating the glamour of such an awesome gathering of ships and the confidence that people had in Britains enormous high tech fleet, before you are drawn into the brutality, waste and horror of warfare. This is due greatly to the brilliant documented eye witness accounts.On top of this I developed a real feel for the key individuals from Beattie down to the petty officers responsible for picking up peoples remains. There are many twists and turns in this story which are brought to light, leaving you engrossed for a long time after completion. Very well written and incredibly un bias, a very well balanced book.
