THE WAR IN THE NORTH SEA

By Quintin Barry

(Subject: Naval & Maritime: Ships, Submarines & Other Vessels - General) For years before the outbreak of the First World War, it was the expectation of most officers of the Royal Navy and the Imperial German Navy that, very shortly, a decisive fleet action would be fought. In fact, the unalterable geographic situation meant that for the Grand Fleet in its Scottish bases, the correct course to follow was not to seek a major fleet encounter. Essentially, it was by staying where it was that it could neutralise the High Seas Fleet and enforce an economic blockade of Germany. The principal naval battle of Jutland occurred when the world's two most powerful fleets clashed, almost by accident, in the North Sea on 31 May 1916. The outcome of the battle has prompted a minute examination of the tactics employed by the commanders, and a continuous debate as to who won. It was a series of chances that had determined the outcome of Jutland. (Published: 2016) (Publisher: Helion & Co.)
