On 21 June 1919, the German Navy scuttled most of the High Seas Fleet in Scapa Flow in the Orkney islands. 470,000 tons of warships that had taken twenty years to build went to the bottom of the Flow in 4 hours. When the Armistice was signed on 11 November 1918, the allies fell out over how to dispose of Germany's naval power. Now the Germans had themselves done what the British failed to do at Jutland: sink their ships.
