One annoyance here is the argument the Battlecruiser was used for the wrong purpose at Jutland. One could argue the speed and versatility of the ship was used to perfect use in drawing the German fleet north into the waiting arms of the Grand Fleet and that it would have been impossible to string Scheer's fleet out with slow lumbering Battleships the way the Battlecruisers did. Thus the crossing of the T and the tactical victory which that ensured to the British was made possible only by the use of the Battlecruisers in the way they were used. Further it was not a flawed design and use of the ships that saw to their destruction but rather a breakdown in safety precautions which allowed for the flash fires destroying the ships in what otherwise should have only disabled the turret of the struck ship.
