Len's Summary: A new, revisionist analysis of a controversial battle which the author asserts was a major British strategic victory rather than a tactical draw or narrow German triumph. Command leadership styles, he says, were more important to the outcome than technical idiosyncrasies of the various classes of dreadnoughts engaged. Most importantly, the battle set in motion the decisions by both sides that materially affected the outcome of the conflict.
