THE GRAND SCUTTLE relates how the Kaiser’s battlefleet came to be interned at Scapa Flow at the end of the First World War, how it was sent to the bottom – in error! - by the German admiral in charge and what happened afterwards, including the staggering effort to salvage the wrecks.  This was the largest act of material self-destruction in the history of warfare.
