1st.ed., 2000. Xviii + 315 pp., 23 photo-ills. D.j., 23 x 16cm. Nr.FINE. Many books have been written about the controversial clash between the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet off Jutland a century ago, but the author claims his study sets a new standard. One of its strengths is a background essay that leads into the battle itself, going on to provide an account that is to be enjoyed by both the general reader and the more experienced student of this affair. The author, drawing on his own naval experience and lifelong interest in Jutland, examines the gunnery issues, use of signals, and naval intelligence. Five appendices include British and German casualties.
