"On the afternoon of 31 May, 1916, the British fleet encountered the German fleet before the Germans had expected. By the time the British turned and fled towards the main fleet, they had lost two battlecruisers and the numerical advantage.

From 18:30 hours, as the sun was lowering on the western horizon, backlighting the British, until nightfall at about 20:30, the two huge fleets, totally 250 ships between them, were heavily engaged.

Fourteen British and eleven German ships were sunk with great losses of life. Both sides claimed victory; the British had lost more ships and many more sailors, but Scheer's plan of destroying Beatty's squadrons had also failed.

In light of this battle, the Germans would turn to Unrestricted Submarie Warfare."

If errors do appear within this video, I do apologize; there were limited photographs of many of the ships. There are many more not presented within this video. I also apologize, as this is the first time I have undertaken the task of tributing fourteen vessels lost in one encounter.

I own no part of the video clips, photographs, or paintings presented within, nor do I own the music. This video is intended for entertainment purposes only. NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED!
