9780141980324: The Rules of the Game: Jutland and British Naval Command

Winner of the Longman's History Today Book of the Year Award and the inaugural Westminster Medal for Military Literature

More than a century had gone by since the Battle of Trafalgar. Generation after generation of British naval captains had been dreaming ever since of a 'new' Trafalgar - a cataclysmic encounter which would decisively change a war's outcome. At last, in the summer of 1916, they thought their moment had come...

Andrew Gordon's extraordinary, gripping book brilliantly recreates the atmosphere of the British navy in the years leading up to Jutland and gives a superb account of the battle itself and its bitterly acrimonious aftermath.

Product Description:

This work describes the course of the Battle of Jutland in May 1916. At the same time, it shows why the battle became a source of controversy, as the author reveals conflicting styles of command, a Victorian suffocation of Nelsonic values, and pragmatism overwhelmed by vested peacetime interests.

Review:

"The most profound study of Jutland this reviewer has ever read." Antony Preston. ( Warship)

'Explosive' ( Navy News)

"A superb study of military culture." Jeremy Black ( History Today)

"For all naval historians, riveting reading." Christopher Andrew. ( Sunday Telegraph)

"A marvellous work ... a rare combination of major substance and easy accessibility." Jon Sumida. ( American Neptune)
