Transcript of makayla thieman

This battle took place in 1916. It took place on the North Sea. The battle was between May 31 to June 1. It was an extremely important battle during the First World War. The war was favored to be a British victory but the results came out differently. The battle opponents were the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet. This was important because it was the only high fleet action in WWI. This was also known as the "Battle".
The German back story is important but so is the British story. The British smarts led to the meeting of the largest Naval Battle in the WW. David Beatty was the threat about waiting for Scheer. At this time the Grand fleet was minutes away.
The Battle commander of the German High Seas was Reinhard Scheer. He wanted to follow old ways by attacking ships along the coast of Britain. He used a coding method and thought it would keep his ship safe from Britain, but it didn't. The British could read his coded messages quite easily actually.
Scheer was then lead to running the Royal Navy instead of the High Seas Fleet. Admiral Fraz von Hipper retreated towards Germany. They both had a lot of strategic ideas but the Germans had the most power or Upper hand. The Germans started to be less in power because there were multiple miscalculations, so the British was beginning to be favored. It got so bad that the Germans had to retreat.
The British did know how to unlock the coded messages from the Germans and did win the battle, bu there were multiple casualties and they got major criticism on their intelligence.
The British were doing good for most of the battle and had good tactics so they ended up winning the Battle. Yes, the British suffered through multiple negative events, but they did have better tactics so again, that's why they ended up winning this important battle.
Germany then got mad about them winning and getting an advantage, so they changed their tactics to better ones and ended up defeating Germany after the battle. Germany updated the submarine war fairs and that gave them a major advantage.
The British and Germans both suffered from advantages and disadvantages. Germany was almost completely pushed out of sea war fair, but they ended up changing tactics and that gave them reliable ships. It also gave them good warfare submarines. The British won the battle but also suffered from improvement of German ships and subs.
This was important because it was the largest naval battle in the first WW. Consequences led to America having War with Germany and the British unlocked Germany's secret coded messages. Those were extremely important events that happened during the battle.
We should always remember Scheer for his hard work and reputation. All in all both sides suffered great losses and gains. Britain, in this battle, had more gains on the open sea while. They decoded the messages and if they didn't the war wouldn't have taken place. We will always remember this battle and it's effect on us and on multiple countries.
