of the Role of Intelligence in the Battle of Jutland, in

the security of the system, and not its use by operational commanders.

Jutland and the Loss of the Battle Cruisers, 1916 in
The Journal of Military History, 62 (January, 1998)

shows that three battlecruisers may have been lost because of
extra quantities of ammunition piled up in ammunition handling

True, Lt-Cmdr Arnold E.. USN The Effects of Meteorological
Conditions on Tactical Operations at Jutland
Proceedings(journal of the United States Naval Institute),
Vol 66 Number 443, January 1940.
Well worth reading (and searching for) - not only is there a
sensible description of the weather conditions (and the causes)
during the battle, but the author points out ...it is significant
that not one of the officers who exercised tactical command at the
Battle of Jutland has recorded that he gave any consideration to
weather in making his early tactical plans.

at Jutland in
McLean, David and Preston, John(editors)
