The German High Seas Fleet was one of the most powerful naval forces in the world, and had fought the pride of the Royal navy to a stalemate at the battle of Jutland in 1916. After the armistice ended fighting in World War I, the fleet was interned in Scapa Flow pending the outcome of the Treaty of Versailles. Then, in July 1919, the entire fleet attempted to sink itself in the Flow to prevent it being surrendered as war prizes. Of the 74 ships present, 52 sank, while 22 were prevented from doing so by circumstance and British intervention.
