Question

'X' was a battle fought in 1916, after which the German High Seas Fleet made no further attempts to break the Allied blockade or to engage the Grand Fleet for the remainder of World War I.

Which of the following statements regarding 'X' are true?
  1. The battle kept British superiority intact in the Baltic sea.
  2. The battle was fought in the North Sea, near Denmark.
  3. This battle would eventually become the reason for Germany's use of U-boats.
  4. The Germans were unable to inflict any losses on Britain, and British victory was clear and absolute. 


Solution

The correct options are
A The battle kept British superiority intact in the Baltic sea.
B The battle was fought in the North Sea, near Denmark.
C This battle would eventually become the reason for Germany's use of U-boats.
The Battle of Jutland was fought on the west coast of Jutland, Denmark, in 1916. Britain suffered heavier losses in terms of ships and lives, but the balance of power in European waters had not essentially changed. The British still dominated the North Sea. The German High Command was notified that further fleet action was not an option, and that submarine warfare, i.e., the use of U-boats was Germany’s best hope for victory at sea from that point on in the war.
