May 30, 1916 - Royal Navy Moves to Intercept Imperial High Seas Fleet in the North Sea. Pictured - The first moves towards the Battle of Jutland, the 1st and last great naval battle of WW1. By mid-1916, the Royal Navy’s blockade of Germany was beginning to take its toll. Worse, Germany's submarines offensive to starve Britain had ended inconclusively, when American protests forced the German government to cease unrestricted submarine warfare. But Germany had another card up its sleeve...
The Battle of Jutland (German: Skagerrakschlacht) was a naval battle fought by the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet (which also included ships and individual personnel from the Royal Australian Navy and Royal Canadian Navy) against the Imperial German Navy's High Seas Fleet during the First World War. The battle was fought on 31 May and 1 June 1916 in the North Sea near Jutland, Denmark. It was the largest naval battle and the only full-scale clash of battleships in the war
