The author, the grandson of Admiral John Jellicoe, commander of the British Grand Fleet at Jutland, gives a compelling, dramatic account of the Royal Navy’s last great sea battle. His descriptions and analysis of the men, ships, tactics, decisions, successes and failures on both sides are scrupulously accurate and fair. And when he turns to Jellicoe’s shabby treatment after the battle by politicians, press lords, and carping, quibbling, jealous lesser admirals, he is equally professional and accurate. The measure of Jellicoe’s achievement is that the great German admirals, Scheer and Hippper, never brought the German High Seas Fleet, the Kaiser’s pride and joy, out again to contest the mastery of the North Sea.”—ROBERT K MASSIE, Pulitzer prize-winning author of Castles of Steel and Dreadnought.
