Product Overview

The bleak Scottish anchorage of Scapa Flow was one of the greatest naval bases in history. During the two world wars it was the home base of the world's greatest naval force - the British Home Fleet. The British fleet sailed from here to the battle of Jutland in 1916 and it was from here that Lord Kitchener set sail on his final voyage. At war's end the German High Seas Fleet scuttled itself here rather than fall into British hands.

During the Battle of Britain a substantial part of the Royal Navy prepared itself at Scapa Flow for a last stand in the Channel should the German invasion of Britain be launched. This gripping narrative contains eyewitness accounts and assembles the most massive collection of photographs on the subject ever printed.
