8 Bells Lecture Series

8 Bells Lecture Series;

Education/Lectures

Seamen's Church Institute, 18 Market Square, Newport, , 02840

The Naval War College Museum Presents:

“Before Jutland: The Shock of the New Technologies at the Start of the First World War at Sea,” by James Goldrick

Before Jutland is a definitive study of the naval engagements in northern European waters in 1914–15 when the German High Sea Fleet faced the Grand Fleet in the North Sea and the Russian Fleet in the Baltic. Author James Goldrick reexamines one of the key periods of naval operations in the First World War, arguing that a focus on the campaign on the western front conceals the reality that the Great War was also a maritime conflict.
