The Blooding of the Guns

(1976)
(The first book in the Nicholas Everard series)
A novel by

 
Dramatic, meticulously researched novel of a uniquely fascinating sea battle - Jutland, 1916. In the grey windswept North Sea, Sir John Jellicoe sails with his battle squadrons out of Scapa and Cromarty whilst Sir David Beatty with his battlecruisers from Rosyth await the challenge of the Kaiser's High Sea Fleet. Over a hundred thousand men took part, and the reader shares the excitement, fear and anxiety of those who fought at Jutland - how it felt to be in a tiny destroyer racing to launch torpedoes into a line of dreadnoughts' blazing guns; how it feels to be inside a battleship's fifteen-inch turrets; or on the bridge of a cruiser under pulverising bombardment. This IS battle at sea.

Genre: Historical    

"The most meticulously researched war novels that I have ever read." - Len Deighton
