The Fighting Face of a British Battleship: The Royal Oak

Though this Royal Oak did not have the triple gun turrets only twins, the remarkable head-on view gives a good impression of a very powerful fighting force.

The Battle of Jutland, HMS Royal Oak by Anthony Saunders


The Battle of Jutland, HMS Royal Oak by Anthony Saunders

The British Grand Fleet had been virtually unopposed for nearly a century but now there was a challenge to the throne: the German Navy. Although smaller, it had caught up fast and by the time of Jutland, had some telling advantages over the British Fleet. the plan for the battle was to lure the British Grand Fleet into a lethal trap in German waters. In the event although desperately fought by both sides, the battle was a stale mate. the confused conflict was hampered on both sides by bad luck, bad weather and poor communications. at the end of the battle, the Royal navy had suffered higher losses in men and ships, but the German fleet never ventured out of harbour to seek battle again.
