Why did Britain win the battle of jutland?
The battle is considered a British victory because the German High Seas Fleet never again seriously contested British control of the oceans. The British lost more ships, but many of the surviving German ships were damaged. This battle was anti-climactic and somewhat inconclusive. Neither fleet was destroyed, in any sense of the word.

How did geography influence the battle of Thermopylae?
The nearby Strait of Artemesion was selected by the Greeks for a decisive sea battle against the Persian fleet to eliminate its threat against the southern Greek cities. In order to precipitate the sea battle, the narrow pass at Thermopylai was selected to block the Persian army's march south, and force the Persians to use their fleet to turn the blockage. When the sea battle failed to deliver a victory, the Greek fleet retired to Salamis to try again, and the pass at Thermopylai was abandoned as no longer useful.

Why did the victory at Yorktown end the war?
During the American Revolutionary War, the American victory at Yorktown (Virginia) in 1781 resulted in the end of the war because of the significant British losses in that battle. Losing over 7,000 soldiers after also having their fleet routed, the British reckoned that the war had become too costly; to continue it (let alone pursue final victory in it) was simply not affordable.
