The Germans had their own ammunition issues during the Battle of the Dodder Bank where they nearly lost the Seydlitz to a turret casement hit and fire. Again a turret officer just saved the ship by flooding the turret and magazine. After that they tightened up their cordite handling.I think the High Seas Fleet deserves great credit.
For example, it took 23 hits to sink the dreadnought Lutzow, and even then it was scuttled in case the British captured it.
Indefatigable and Queen Mary blew up after a few hits because of the catastrophic ammunition storage errors.
It used to be said that German gunnery was more accurate because of superior optical equipment, but I am not so sure. I saw somewhere the proportion of hits to shells fired, and the British rate was lower, but not significantly so. The main British negatives came from Beatty and his squadron.
But it was a "typically German" military performance - thoroughly professional and highly competent, but not enough to make up for the lack in numbers, or the cracking of their codes by the British.
When Lutzow was scuttled, some men were still trapped below decks and had to be abandoned. The last men to leave the ship could hear them singing as they awaited death. You have to salute that type of courage, not matter what country
I think the handling of the High Seas Fleet was amazing. The escape is one of the most amazing breaking from contact manoeuvres in the history of naval warfare. The actions of the German Scouting Squadron are also amazing - especially in the escape - where the battered German battle cruisers went at the main British line to gain their main fleet time to disengage. Near suicidal bravery.
Neither their undoubted bravery, their tactical brilliance or the technical greatness of their ships masks the fact that Jutland ended any real threat to Britain's control of the sea. A fact that ultimately helped doom Germany. In the end the German Fleet was one massive white elephant.
