What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Osprey Publishing’s latest monograph ... focuses on the largest World War I battleships, the Dreadnoughts, and the epic 1916 clash between the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet and the Kaiser's High Seas Fleet. Author Stille (CDR USN ret.), makes the technical material understandable to the layman, and is ably assisted by the illustrators, whose drawings and maps clarify the ships’ layouts and the battle tactics. An enjoyable and educational read, highly recommended." -Steve Zajac, IPMS/USA (November 2010)

"Author Mark Stille is known for his writings on naval subjects and brings that expertise to this book on the opposing ships and their performance at Jutland in 1916 ... In all, a superlative inclusion to this series." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (October 2010)

"These Osprey Duel Series books are very interesting, giving the reader an insight into how the Navies and their ships compared and why the results from various battles were obtained ... There have been many books written on British and German Dreadnoughts of WW I and the Battle of Jutland, but this one is a comparison between the two up to the end of that conflict." - Glen Porter, (February 2011) 

"...provieds a powerful story of the British and German battleships of two great fleets. Coverage of their differing weaponry, crew, and strategies offers a moment-by-moment reconstructionof events and analyzes the outcome of the struggle in a military assessment perfect for collections." - The Midwest Book Review
