About the Author

Nicholas Jellicoe's life is steeped in British naval tradition. His grandfather, Sir John Jellicoe, commanded the Grand Fleet at Jutland while his father, George, was a minister of defence for the Navy and the last man to hold the time-honoured post of First Lord of the Admiralty. Nick's career has been in communications, notably with Rolex. His first book recounted the story of Jutland, while this new work brings the story of the great naval struggle of the First World War to its close. A digital animation of the events of 21 June 1919, the circumstances surrounding the scuttle and the salvage, as well as a large amount of other reference materials, are available to view on line at _www.ScapaFlow1919.com_.


In this detailed account Jellicoe presents much fresh material and analysis, not only telling the sequence of events, but also highlighting the turbulent final days of the German High Seas Fleet in the last months of the war.... This is an excellent historical narrative of the events leading up to the Great Scuttle, the terrible day itself and its aftermath, not least a look at how the world's naval power was rebalanced between the wars. --Warships: International Fleet Review
Jellicoe's greatest accomplishment is his placement of the great scuttle at Scapa Flow within its broader context. His book is embellished with high-quality illustrations and bolstered by detailed appendices. A website easily accessible via QR code in the first appendix includes photographs, maps, and a high-quality 25-minute animated companion to the book's contents. These features no doubt will help make this book attractive to a broad audience of scholars, students, and naval enthusiasts. --The International Journal of Maritime History
