Photograph of the British Grand Fleet patrolling in the North Sea prior to the Battle of Jutland

Taken on 1916-05-31

A series of photographs taken at, and in the aftermath of, the Battle of Jutland (31st May, 1916 - 1st June, 1916). This was the only major fleet action between the British and German navies during the First World War, and saw the destruction of: 3 British battlecruisers, 3 British armoured cruisers, and 8 British destroyers. German losses were lower at: 1 battlecruiser, 1 pre-dreadnought battleship, 4 light cruiser and 5 torpedo boats. The total number of lives lost in the battle were 6,094 British dead and 2,551 German. Despite the fact that the German High Seas Fleet was able to inflict far higher casualties on their British opponents, due to an inability to break out into the Atlantic Ocean, the High Seas Fleet never again set sail. Following the battle, the German naval high command switched to a total focus on unrestricted submarine warfare, which would later cause the entry of the United States into the First World War after the destruction of numerous American merchant ships. The images were collected and published after the battle in 1920 by H.M. Fawcett and G.W.W Hooper in a book called "The Fighting at Jutland: The Experiences of Forty-five Officers and Men of the British Fleet."

Taken on 1916-02-21 *

"La Tranchée faisait de la guerre un travail de manoeuvre, des guerriers les journaliers de la mort,usés jusqu'a la corde par un quotidien sanglant E. JUNGER" The Battle of Verdun was one of the largest battles of the First World War on the Western Front between the German and French armies. The battle took place on the hills north of Verdun-sur-Meuse in north-eastern France. The German 5th Army attacked the defences of the Région Fortifiée de Verdun (RFV) and those of the Second Army garrisons on the right bank of the Meuse, intending to rapidly capture the Côtes de Meuse (Meuse Heights), from which Verdun could be overlooked and bombarded with observed artillery fire. The Battle ended in a French victory, but at a cost of many hundreds of thousands of lives.
