The Battle of Jutland, off the Danish coast, was the greatest clash of battleships in history when the Royal Navy and German High Seas Fleet encountered one another in late May, 1916. The German Naval Command conceived of an expedition to trim down the larger British fleet through a carefully planned raid. However, British Naval Intelligence had broken German naval codes and the hunter became the hunted.
