The title of this topic is a bit disingenuous in that the US Navy has never claimed to have won the Battle of Jutland … but they did use the results of the battle to test and to improve the wargame rules used at the US Naval War College, Newport, RI.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to take part in a wargame organised by members of the US Naval War College at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. It was a very interesting experience, and my blog has a report about it here = link

Nice report, Bob !

You fired twice at HMS Colossus, but didn't say if you hit and damaged her.

Sounds like a great time – thanks for sharing

chicklewis,

Players were not informed of the damage they caused, only the damage their ship suffered.

Bob, how could you resist introducing yourself post-game to the commander of the Colossus and asking him ??

You are clearly a better man than I.
