Publisher's Summary

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 20th 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.

Well done

Version of Jutland that deftly pulls the time before and after, ships, admirals & controversy threads together for the reader. I've read Massie's chapters on the battle over many times and this book truly augmented Jutland appreciably more for me.

Wonderful Book

Well told story it is eminently readable and the narrator is outstanding. I highly recommend this book. For a full story if the Great War at Sea, read Castles of Steel by Robert Massie.

Compelling read

This is a fascinating book, rich in detail which paints a complete picture of both the battle as well as the personalities involved. It’s a long read, but well worth the effort for anyone interested in this period of history. I was never bored.

Tedious account

Officious, excruciatingly fastidious analysis of Jutland battle. Lots of good information intermingled with exaustingly detailed statistics. This boring audio not recommended.
