The Jutland Scandal: The Truth About the First World War’s Greatest Sea Battle. By Rear Admiral John Harper and Admiral Reginald Bacon. Frontline Books, Pen and Sword, Barnsey 2016.
Reviewed by Tim Coyle
‘The Jutland Scandal’ comprises a reprint of two books: ‘The Truth About Jutland’ by John Harper and ‘The Jutland Scandal’ by Reginald Bacon. These books were first published in May 1927 and January 1925 respectively (which extended to three impressions for Harper’s book and five for Bacon) to refute the reputational assaults on the former Royal Navy Grand Fleet (GF) Commander-in-Chief Admiral Sir John Jellicoe’s command at the Battle of Jutland 31 May to 01 June 1916.
