There has never been anything in history Quite like the self-destruction of the German High Seas Fleet at Scapa Flow in June 1919. Within five hours a fleet of sixteen capital ships with cruisers and destroyers was sunk by its own crews to avoid surrender to the Allies.

The story of the internment, the scuttling, and the political complications which surrounded these events is taken from a recent book by one of the German officers concerned, as well as from British and German official records.
