Synopsis: At Jutland in 1916, the British Grand Fleet, the most powerful in the world, finally engaged and should have crushed its German rival. It failed to do so and this text aims to reveal that important failures in its handling originated in conflicting styles of command and different understandings of the rules of the game. Andrew Gordon here examines issues of peace and war relevant not only to Jutland but to all fighting services, and to the present as well as the past.
About the Author: Andrew Gordon began his investigation into Jutland following a casual conversation seven years ago. He has a Ph. D in War Studies and is the auhtor of "British Sea Power and Procurement Between the Wars," an acclaimed exploration of naval policy and administration in the 1920s and '30s.
