About the Author

Vice-Admiral John Harper was born in New Zealand on 29 May 1874, joining the Royal Navy in 1888.
Admiral Reginald Bacon, from Wiggonholt in West Sussex, joined the Royal Navy in 1877, at the age of just fourteen or fifteen.


"At last, serious students of the World War I Battle of Jutland have available in a single volume the official but long-suppressed Record of the Battle of Jutland, produced soon after the battle by Captain John Harper, as well as Admiral Reginald Bacon's more judgmental The Jutland Scandal produced in 1925 and revised in 1933. These detailed and controversial accounts illuminate not only the events of the battle but also the politics of the Royal Navy in the interwar years." Craig L. Symonds, author of The Battle of Midway and Neptune

"These two accounts, both drawn from official files, reveal just what a massive, chaotic, thrilling fight Jutland was: a German bid to lure the Royal Navy to a watery grave, converted to a strategic victory for the British." Geoffrey Wawro, director, Military History Center, University of North Texas and author of A Mad Catastrophe: The Outbreak of World War I and the Collapse of the Habsburg Empire

"[Harper and Bacon's] clear and authoritative accounts emphasize issues such as tactics, technology, command, and seamanship...these accessible works are mandatory for serious students of naval warfare and WWI." Publishers Weekly
