It is good. The best bit I find is the Memoirs of Jutland written by a Gunnery officer in HMS Lion of events during his time on the ship both prior and after the battle as well as the negagement itself.

Somewhere in the morass that is the internet is a site with the memoirs of the Captain of the SMS Seydlitz which describes the battle from his point of view. Well worth a read of both in my opinion. I shall have to try and find the Sedlytiz account and post the site address.

That would be great if you can find it. The battle of Jutland has always fascinated me.

The local fountain of knowledge has it! Personally I like the Lion account better as it gives a better insight into crew life and problems in the battlecruiser squadron which were grimely realised in Jutland.
