This book follows the momentous day of 21 June 1919, when the German naval commander Admiral Von Reuter decided to scuttle his fleet of seventy-four ships interned at Scapa Flow rather than see them fall into Allied hands. This book follows the events of that momentous day, drawing on eyewitness accounts of those who saw the crisis unfold, including a group of children enjoying a school trip they would never forget.  David Meara uses archive material, personal letters and contemporary photographs to bring the extraordinary events of that Midsummer's Day to life.
