Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Battle of Jutland, Part II
31 May-1 June 1916: The High Seas Fleet under Hipper & Scheer lured the British into their trap & the Grand Fleet under Beatty & Jellicoe lured the Germans into their counter-trap; only by superior seamanship & coordination did the Germans escape in the night; the British suffered twice as many casualties, but the German surface fleet remained bottled up in port for the remainder of the war.

Lest we forget.
