Jutland: The Unfinished Battle

“A compelling, dramatic account of the Royal Navy's last great sea battle.”—Robert K. Massie, Pulitzer Prize-winning and New York Times-bestselling author of Dreadnought
 
More than a century later, historians still argue about this controversial and misunderstood World War I naval battle off the coast of Denmark. It was the twentieth century’s first engagement of dreadnoughts—and while it left Britain in control of the North Sea, both sides claimed victory and decades of disputes followed, revolving around senior commanders Admiral Sir John Jellicoe and Vice Admiral Sir David Beatty.
 
This book not only retells the story of the battle from both a British and German perspective based on the latest research, but also helps clarify the context of Germany’s inevitable naval clash and the aftermath after the smoke had cleared.
