The Battle of Jutland was the largest naval battle and the only full-scale clash of battleships in the First World War. For years the myriad factors contributing to the loss of many of the ships remained a mystery, subject only to speculation and theory. In this book, marine archaeologist and historian Dr Innes McCartney reveals for the first time what became of the warships that vanished on the night of 31st May 1916, examining the circumstances behind the loss of each ship and reconciling what was known in 1916 to what the archaeology is revealing today. The knowledge of what was present was transformed in 2015 by a groundbreaking survey using the modern technology of multi-beam. This greatly assisted in unravelling the details behind several Jutland enigmas, not least the devastating explosions which claimed five major British warships, the details of the wrecks of the 13 destroyers lost in the battle and the German warships scuttled during the night phase. This is the first book to identify the locations of many of the wrecks, and – scandalously – how more than half of these sites have been illegally plundered for salvage, despite their status as war graves. An essential and revelatory read for anyone interested in naval history and marine archaeology.

Since the days of the Battle of Trafalgar, the Royal Navy had been the acknowledged as the most powerful maritime force on the planet. Britain could boast more warships, and particularly more Dreadnoughts and battle-cruisers than any other nation. But the Germans had undertaken an enormously-expensive ship-building programme designed to place the Kaiserliche Marine on an equal footing with the Royal Navy. Since the outbreak of war between the two nations in 1914, the British public had waited in eager anticipation for the moment when the opposing battlefleets would meet at sea. After a number of smaller engagements, major elements of the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet, finally faced each other across the grey seas of the North Sea off Jutland. Instead of the great victory that the British expected, the result was disappointingly inconclusive, with the Grand Fleet losing more men and more ships than the Germans. In this inciteful and unique investigation into the battle, naval historian Richard Osborne draws on the words of the key players to resolve the many disputes, controversies and myths that have surrounded this battle throughout the intervening 100 years.

The German High Seas Fleet was one of the most powerful naval forces in the world, and had fought the pride of the Royal Navy to a stalemate at the battle of Jutland in 1916. After the armistice was signed, ending fighting in World War I, it surrendered to the British and was interned in Scapa Flow pending the outcome of the Treaty of Versailles. In July 1919 the entire fleet attempted to sink itself in the Flow to prevent it being broken up as war prizes. Of the 74 ships present, 52 sunk and 22 were prevented from doing so by circumstance and British intervention. Marine archaeologist and historian Dr Innes McCartney reveals for the first time what became of the warships that were scuttled, examining the circumstances behind the loss of each ship and reconciling what was known at the time to what the archaeology is telling us today. This fascinating study reveals a fleet lost for nearly a century beneath the waves.

Ein Sachbuch über eine Schlacht zugleich ein literarisches Ereignis. Wie schafft man es in der heutigen Zeit, mit einem Buch über eine Schlacht den erfolgreichsten Non-Fiction-Titel des Jahres zu schreiben? Tom Buk-Swienty ist dies 2008 in Dänemark gelungen, indem er das Kriegsleiden eindringlich aus der Perspektive des einfachen Soldaten, der Offiziere, Feldärzte und Kriegskorrespondenten erzählt. Was so entstanden ist, ist ein mitreißender, dokumentarischer Bericht über die Schlacht, für die die Soldaten den "Kosenamen" "Schlachtbank" Düppel erfanden.

Schriftquellen allein können kein umfassendes Bild einer Epoche geben. Je mehr unterschiedliche Quellen man einbezieht, desto mehr interessante und historisch wertvolle Erkenntnisse lassen sich gewinnen. Auch wenn man glaubt, bereits (fast) alles zu wissen, weil man beispielsweise Zeitzeuge ist. Und dies gilt auch für die Archäologie mit dem Zeitfenster des 20. Jahrhunderts. In dieser ersten allgemeinverständlichen Darstellung zum Thema stellen ausgewiesene Experten die neuesten archäologischen Erkenntnisse vor. Dabei stehen die Denkmäler der nationalsozialistischen Zeit, aber auch des Ersten Weltkriegs im Fokus - Schlachtfelder und abgestürzte Flugzeuge, Konzentrationslager und Kriegsgefangenlager, Relikte des Westwalls und die Berliner Mauer.
