When Germany Sank Her Own Ships

Scapa Flow 1919When Germany Sank Her Own Ships

At the end of the First World War the German naval fleet was interned at Orkney, in the sheltered waters of Scapa Flow, whilst the allied powers discussed what to do with the vessels. But why did Admiral Ludwig von Reuter order the scuttling of these ships, the largest loss of tonnage in history? This documentary tells the story of why Germany sank her own ships in the tumultuous early days of the German republic.
