Jutland: The Unfinished Battle

Nicholas Jellicoe

Omschrijving

A Personal History of a Naval Controversy
One hundred years after Jutland, the first and largest engagement of Dreadnoughts in the twentieth century,historians are still fighting this controversial and misunderstood battle. What was in fact a strategic victory stands out starkly against the background of bitter public disappointment in the Royal Navy and decades of divisive acrimony and very public infighting between the camps supporting the two most senior commanders, Jellicoe and Beatty. This book not only re-tells the story of the battle from both a British and German perspective based on the latest research, but it also helps clarify the context of Germany’s inevitable naval clash. It then traces the bitter dispute that ensued in the years after the smoke of war had cleared – right up to his death in 1935, Admiral Jellicoe was embroiled in what became known as the ‘Jutland Controversy’. Nick Jellicoe is uniquely placed to tell the story of Jutland. His naval connections are strong: his father, the second Earl served as First Lord of the Admiralty while his grandfather, Sir John Jellicoe commanded the Grand Fleet for the first two years on the war, from 1914 to 1916 – famously described by Churchill as being ‘the only man who could have lost the war in an afternoon’.Please take a moment to visit: Jutland1916.com
