The Battle of Jutland Centenary

The Battle of Jutland saw the largest naval engagement of the First World War.

The British Royal Navy's Grand Fleet and the Imperial German Navy's High Seas Fleet clashed in the North Sea, off the coast of Denmark, near Jutland.

The German Fleet's objective was to destroy a portion of the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet in an attempt to break the blockade of Germany imposed by the Royal Navy.

The British Fleet's objective was to destroy the German High Seas Fleet in order to protect British shipping vital to the war effort.

In terms of men and ships lost, the Battle of Jutland was a marginal German victory.

However, both sides claimed victory in the encounter.
