1916 Battle Of Jutland

Over a hundred years after this great sea battle between the two largest fleets in the world, controversy still rages over whether there was a winner or not and how close the battle came to deciding the outcome of the First World War.
It was said of Admiral Jellicoe commander of the British Grand Fleet which had remained unchallenged for over a century, that he was the only man who could have lost the war in an afternoon.

What is beyond doubt is that the British Navy lost more ships and the Kaisers navy never dared to challenge the Royal Navy again after Jutland. Was there as Admiral Beatty said during the battle "Something wrong with our bloody ships today" Or did the German navy escape certain destruction by running away? Find out about the battle and the lead up to in this gripping talk by Paul Robbins an exceptional speaker and Historian.
