With the Battle Cruisers
Serving with the battle cruisers, Filson Young was placed at the tip of the spear as the war in the North Sea unfolded over the course of 1914-15. Buoyed by the success of the Scarborough raid, Admiral Hipper of the Imperial German Navy sought a repeat of the exercise, this time against the fishing fleet on the Dogger Bank. Young was there to witness it. First published in 1921, With the Battle Cruisers is a very personal, focused study of naval life during wartime as it unfolded for Young.
