Quintin Barry : The War in the North Sea
To mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Jutland, the largest naval battle of all time, Quintin Barry will talk about his new book ‘The War In The North Sea’. Renowned historian and author Quintin Barry will tell us about the First World War’s crucial naval war in the North Sea, which has given rise to many conflicting accounts. The total loss of life at the Battle of Jutland alone was 9,823 men, with both sides claiming victory, and continuing debate as to its outcome.
In his authoritative book Barry draws on many sources to analyse this pivotal naval war, and Jutland in particular, and presents his own fascinating insights and conclusions. A long term resident of Shoreham, Quintin Barry is the author of a number of works of military history.
His talk will be illustrated with contemporary photographs.
