Based on letters, diaries, unpublished memoirs, interviews, books and other sources, this detailed study examines the whole event from the perspective of participants on both sides and from all ranks. Relive the dramatic intensity of the battle, and the all too sad aftermath.

Jutland 1916: Death in the Grey Wastes is a compelling and revealing insight into the reality of life at sea during World War One. The authors, seeking to 'return [the battle] to its rightful place alongside the Somme and Passchendaele as one of the key episodes of the Great War', have drawn on contemporary writings to provide an emotional and provocative retelling. They discuss key events, personalities such as Jellicoe and the youngest ever Victoria Cross winner, 16 year-old Jack Cornwell, as well as debates, including the longstanding question that has perplexed historians ever since the Battle, "Who Won?". This is a riveting book that will be of interest to general as well as academic readers, starkly portraying the actuality of war, a pertinent study in this current era. (Kirkus UK)
