The largest battleship fleet action in history has invited historians to mine it's military,technological and historical significance. I have read a number of books on the subject.
I first bought "Jutland:An Analysis of the Fighting" by John Campbell, published by United States Naval Institute Press which is an exhaustive chronicle of every hit and damage therefrom plus analysis of guns,projectiles,armor etc. It's "just the facts". It's description of the action,however is confusing. It has line drawings only.
"Jutland 1916" describes the action in great but less confusing detail and adds the color of eyewitness accounts. More photographs, especially before-and-after shots of damaged ships would have would have been nice, but the photos provided were quite interesting.
It is probably the best single volume on the subject I'm aware of.
