Lettens Jan20/04/2011BATTLE OF JUTLAND

The Battle of Jutland (Skagerrakschlacht) was the largest naval battle of World War I, fought between 31st May and 1st June 1916, in the North Sea near Jutland, Denmark. The Germans' plan was to use five modern battlecruisers to lure the British through a submarine picket line and into the path of the main German fleet.

The plan didn't succeed, but the battle is considered to be won by the Germans, giving the Royal Navy a heavy blow.

Imperial German Navy - Kaiserliche Marine (1903-1919)

Kaiserliche Marine or the German Imperial Navy is the name for the German Navy between 1903 and 1919. Most of the ships had a prefix SMS, Seine Majestäts Schiff, which is the equivalent of HMS, Her/His Majesty's Ship.

This Navy should not be confused with Reichsmarine (1920-1935) or Kriegsmarine (1935-1945).
