The day the entire German fleet surrendered - moved by moderator


Recommended Posts

A short time indeed.  The Ostfriesland, for example was state of the art when commissioned in 1911, but obsolete just 10 years later in 1921 when destroyed by aerial bombs by the nascent US Army Air Corps.


Of note also though, is that it could be argued that the surrender was made possible as much by the sailors mutinies at Wilhelmshaven and Kiel, by personnel that had certainly proved their worth at the battle of Jutland, but did not see any point in fighting anymore...
