This book earns its stars through being great value at this price. The book does not attempt much analysis - it is mostly just the generally agreed history, illuminated with a collection of quotes from German sources such as the Official history and von Hase' memoirs.

One of the reasons for Germany and Britian being on opposite sides in the First World War was the decision of Germany to build a battle fleet to rival Britian's. By the start of the war Germany had a large modern fleet but it was considerably smaller than Britian's.
The battle of Jutland was an attempt by the German Admiral Scheer to bring to battle a smaller part of the British Fleet and to even up the odds. What occured was a confusing battle which has been very clearly explained in this book. Basically a smaller unit of German Battle Cruiser entered into an engagment with a large unit of British Battle Cruisers. The Germans tried to lure these on to their fleet and instead precipitated an short engagment between both fleets. The Germans returned to port losing some ship to torpedoes.
During the initial fight the German Battle Cruisers were able to sink a number of the British Battle Cruisers. The reasons for this were that the British ships were lightly armoured. British shell design was also faulty and this led to a large number of their "hits" not exploding.
Whilst the Germans sank more ships the engagment was not decisive and the British were able to continue their Blockade of Germany something which contributed significantly to the German defeat. (At the end of the war front line troops were on a ration of 1,500 calories a day)
The book as well as explaining everything clearly and well has a very large number of maps to explain the position and movement of the ships in the battle. In all and example of how naval history should be written.
