Jutland, 1916 : Death in the Grey Wastes, Paperback / softback Book

Jutland, 1916 : Death in the Grey Wastes Paperback / softback

Part of the W&N Military series

Paperback / softback

Description

Dramatic, illustrated account of the biggest naval battle of the First World War. On 31 May, 1916, the great battle fleets of Britain and Germany met off Jutland in the North Sea.

It was a climactic encounter, the culmination of a fantastically expensive naval race between the two countries, and expectations on both sides were high.

For the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet, there was the chance to win another Trafalgar.

For the German High Seas Fleet, there was the opportunity to break the British blockade and so change the course of the war.

But Jutland was a confused and controversial encounter.

Tactically, it was a draw; strategically, it was a British victory. Naval historians have pored over the minutiae of Jutland ever since.

Yet they have largely ignored what the battle was actually like for its thousands of participants.

Full of drama and pathos, of chaos and courage, JUTLAND, 1916 describes the sea battle in the dreadnought era from the point of view of those who were there.
