Flawed Victory: Jutland, 1916. This is the book for people who want their Jutland knowledge to fit into a larger understanding of the battle's meaning.

Any complete study of Jutland has to address these fairly and in some degree of depth. Rather than just telling you what happened in the battle, Gordon examines an extensive context for British failures to communicate and execute a coherent plan, tracing the blame (in part) to differing command ideologies.
