The Battle of Jutland was the greatest naval engagement of the First World War. Germany needed to break the blockade of its mercantile shipping routes but little did they know that the British admiralty, led by the First Lord Arthur Balfour and The First Sea Lord Sir Henry Jackson, had already caught wind of their plans.
The battle continues to be a source of great interest today. Pen & Sword Books have a number of fascinating titles which will help you to better understand this important conflict at sea.
