1515 31 May 1916. The First World War had been raging for two years and still there had been no clash between the two main fleets of the British and German navies. Smaller clashes at Dogger Bank and Heligoland had provided the British with victories, but there was still the strong desire on their part for a significant "Nelsonian" victory. When the combined German fleet set sail at the end of May 1916, it provided them with this opportunity. Unknown to the German navy, their transmissions had been intercepted and it was well known to the British that they had set sail, although with what force was not clear. So it was no chance encounter that the fleets would clash in the North Sea west of Danish Jutland. But what followed was completely unknown and the outcome of the First World War was completely up in the air as a result.
