The Battle of Jutland

In one of the most penetrating accounts of any battle of the war, Holloway H. Frost presents a minute-by-minute account of the sea-battle of Jutland 1916, ‘the greatest naval battle of modern times’. Researched until his death in 1935, Frost places the story of the battle in the overall context of World War I and in British naval history. The battle was full of errors in communication and missed opportunities to capitalise on good positions, which Frost describes with precise details. There can be no more comprehensive account of one particular sea battle, and for this reason Frost’s account stands as an accurate and balanced picture.
