From: Connecticut, USA
Initially it looked like a French victory, as nearly all the German DDs were sunk vs. 1 French DD. But then 4 French CAs and another DD sank on the way home, partly due to Camponi and Gotha attacks, so at this point I'd say its a German victory. CAs Scharnhorst and Blucher appeared to be badly damaged, but I don't know yet if they survived.
What made this battle interesting was both sides fielded relatively inexperienced ships and commanders. The distance never got less then 10,000 yards so it was a very, very long gunnery duel, and the shooting was quite poor. No torpedoes were fired by either side.
An example of the air attacks off the Pescadores is below - note German, Italian, and Japanese aircraft all participating. Also note on the lower left side how effective Zeppelins can be against Allied subs -
