The authoritative work on the great sea battle of World War I.

Jutland has produced more inconclusive controversy from historians and naval officers than any other modern sea fight, and yet no previous account has made more than passing reference to the extensive records of the battle, such as the action and damage reports and the ammunition expenditure returns, or described adequately the various destroyer actions. Here, for the first time, John Campbell has pieced together and analyzed the wealth of official technical material available from both navies, throwing new light on a host of questions, including how many individual ships stood up to punishment and the quality of each ship's gunnery. As a result of his painstaking study, posterity may have to modify its judgment, for better or worse, of certain naval officers and ship designers.Highly successful on its first publication in the 1980s, Jutland: An Analysis of the Fighting has become the classic authoritative work on the subject, changing the study of Jutland profoundly and establishing the benchmark for all subsequent naval studies of the First World War. Renowned naval historian Antony Preston provides a preface to this new edition of Campbell's influential book. (5 3/4 X 9, 448 pages, diagrams, charts)
