Hi everyone;
One of our game group is planning on running a game recreating the Battle of Jutland.
I know the "Big Picture" story and have seen some videos, but I'd like to find a good book covering the battle.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Joe

Always had a soft spot for "The Blindfold Game" by Ewart Oakeshott. Used to borrow it time after time from my local library when I was still at school.

Jutland the unfinished battle sounds and looks great.
Thanks

Hi bz;
I'm not having any luck finding a version of "The Blindfold Game" that deals with the Battle of Jutland.
Out of print perhaps
Thanks

This remains the best blow by blow account for the battle:
