Following his stunning victory over the British at the Battle of Coronel on November 1, 1914, Admiral Graf Maximilian von Spee turned the German East Asia Squadron for Valparaiso, Chile. Entering port, von Spee was compelled by international law to leave after 24 hours. Assessing his squadron's situation, von Spee found that half his ammunition was expended and that coal was in short supply.

Turning south, the East Asia Squadron set a course around Cape Horn and made for Germany. He was caoght by the royal Navy and suffered a terrible loss, including his own death. In the fighting, Sturdee's squadron suffered 10 killed and 19 wounded. For von Spee, casualties numbered 1,817 killed, including the admiral and his 2 sons, as well as the loss of 4 ships

The results of the naval race between Britain and Germany, a contributing factor of pre-war tensions were now put to the test. Superior in numbers to the German High Seas Fleet, the Royal Navy opened the fighting with a raid on the German coast on August 28, 1914.

The resulting Battle of Heligoland Bight was a British victory. While neither side's battleships were involved, the fight led Kaiser Wilhelm to order the navy to "hold itself back and avoid actions which can lead to greater losses."

Off the west coast of South America, a small German East Asiatic Squadron inflicted a severe defeat on a British force at the Battle of Coronel on November 1. The German East Asiatic Squadron was the only German naval squadron overseas at the outbreak of World War I.

Composed of the armored cruisers SMS Scharnhorst and SMS Gneisenau, as well as 2 light cruisers, the fleet was commanded by Admiral Maximilian von Spee. With the war's start in August 1914, von Spee began making plans to abandon his base at Tsingtao, China before he was trapped by British, Australian, and Japanese forces. he eventually fought his way out and defeated the British Royal Navy.

The defeat off Coronel was the first suffered by a British fleet at sea in 100 years and unleashed a wave of outrage across Britain.

With the Allied blockade increasingly taking a toll on the German war effort, the Kaiserliche Marine began devising plans to bring the Royal Navy to battle. Outnumbered in battleships and battle cruisers, the commander of the High Seas Fleet, Vice Admiral Reinhard Scheer, hoped to lure part of the British fleet to its doom with the goal of evening the numbers for a larger engagement at a later date.

To accomplish this, Scheer intended to have Vice Admiral Franz Hipper's scouting force of battle cruisers raid the English coast to draw out Vice Admiral Sir David Beatty's Battle cruiser Fleet. The result led to the High Seas Fleet effectively remaining in port for the remainder of the war as the Kaiserliche Marine turned its focus to submarine warfare.

Both Jellicoe and Beatty were criticized for their performance at Jutland, the battle did lead to several changes in the Royal Navy. Changes were made to ensure a higher degree of safety, improvements to gunnery practices, signaling, and Fleet Standing Orders.
