The German High Seas Fleet was one of the most powerful naval forces in the world, and had fought the pride of the Royal Navy to a stalemate at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. After the armistice was signed, ending fighting in World War I, the fleet surrendered to the British and was interned in Scapa Flow pending the outcome of the Treaty of Versailles. One hundred years to this day, on 21 June 1919, the entire fleet attempted to sink itself in the Flow to prevent it being broken up as war prizes. Of the 74 ships present, 52 sunk and 22 were prevented from doing so by circumstance and by British intervention.
