Synopsis

Introducing young Nicholas Everard at the Battle of Jutland, the first of the nine volume Everard Naval Series spanning the years 1916 to 1943.

On the last day of May, 1916, one hundred and fifty British ships, manned by sixty thousand sailors, confronted the German High Sea Fleet of one hundred ships and forty five thousand men in the icy North Sea off the coast of Jutland. This epic battle is the subject of the first in the series of naval novels featuring Nicholas Everard and his sons. A meticulous and dramatic recreation of an historic confrontation, it is filled with action, tension and heroism. This is naval warfare, as close as one can get without actually having been there.
