The loss of the cruiser HMS Hampshire and Lord Kitchener off Marwick Head, Orkney on 5 June 1916 shocked the nation and has since been shrouded by secrecy and censorship, subject to rumour, hoaxes and conspiracy theories that linger to this day.  To commemorate the centenary, twelve authors with local knowledge have pooled their expertise to sort fact from fiction with an objective review of the many books, press cuttings and unpublished records now available. This volume also traces the story of the Kitchener Memorial erected in 1926 and describes the events staged in Orkney to mark the centenary.
