The damage is arranged chronologically and profusely illustrated with diagrams show the shell strike and the thickness of the armor and other ships structures in the vicinity of the hit. For some reason the damage diagrams of the hits on the British ships are significantly more detailed than the German ones. The British diagrams even include the weight per square foot of the decks and bulkheads.
Finally, there is a brief summary of the findings which assert that the loss of the British BCs, contrary to conventional wisdom was the result of over sensitive British propellant charges rather than the tendency of the crews to ignore safe ammunition handling practices to increase rate of fire.
This really is the definitive source on capital ship damage at Jutland, but potential readers should be advised that the book is very narrowly focused on damage. It is not a general history of the battle, nor does it have much narrative flow. It would best be read in tandem with a more general history of the battle such as Campbell's The Rules of the Game. That being said, the book is simply outstanding!
