About Book

One Man's Jutland looks back over the role played by Admiral Jellicoe in the Royal Navy whilst fighting in the Jutland area during the Second World War. Unfairly blamed by Churchill for the severe losses suffered at the hands of the Germans, Clifford Evans lays out the forces at play in Jellicoe being wrongly villified, and makes a compelling case for him as one of the greatest naval leaders ever produced. What makes his argument all the stronger, at the same time elevating his narrative in its historical value, are the accounts taken from the diaries of his grandfather, Sub Lieutenant Thomas Charles Evans RN, who was serving under Jellicoe at the time. Such first-hand descriptions give the reader unparallelled insight into the reality of naval warfare during this period, as well as an indication of the great esteem with which Jellicoe was regarded by the men under his leadership.
