Naval War College Review

Volume 69, Number 4 (2016) Autumn


“General Plan of the Battle,” extracted from the original report on the battle of Jutland, as compiled by Lieutenant (junior grade) Holloway Halstead Frost and submitted on 26 November 1916 during World War I. Frost produced his detailed report within six months of the epic battle between the Grand Fleet of the Royal Navy, commanded by Admiral Sir John Jellicoe, and the Imperial German High Seas Fleet. The U.S. Navy, urged on by Rear Admiral William S. Sims, sought to draw strategic perspective on technical innovations and new doctrine and tactics from this and other World War I battles.

In this issue’s “The U.S. Navy Won the Battle of Jutland,” David Kohnen—with contributions from the admirals’ grandsons Nicholas Jellicoe and Nathaniel Sims—explains why the battle of Jutland and World War I continue to resonate within contemporary concepts concerning the future of American sea power.
