Nick Jellicoe studied Chinese politics before working in advertising, in American Express’s European marketing group and running global communications for Rolex.

He has written about his grandfather Admiral Sir John Jellicoe who commanded the Grand Fleet at Jutland in Jutland – The Unfinished Battle, the scuttling of the German Navy in 1919 in The Last Days of the High Seas Fleet and his father George Jellicoe. An early member of the Special Air Service as David Stirling’s 2iC, his father commanded the SBS in the Aegean and later went into politics. He fittingly became the last holder of the office of First Lord of the Admiralty. His next book, Jellicoe’s War, to be published in October by Seaforth Publishing, deals with Admiral Jellicoe’s war against the U-boat threat in the First War.

Nick is a frequent presenter on TV and radio and works closely with a number of naval and maritime museums. He is a Vice Patron of the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust and the Maritime Archaeological Trust. He lives with his wife and one of their two daughters in Switzerland.
