A revolutionary ship symbolizing British naval might in the Victorian age, HMS Warrior was the world's first iron-hulled, armored warship and now a main attraction at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. This lavishly illustrated book examines her design, career, subsequent history, and the extensive restoration program that restored the ship to her former glory. Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of her launch, it provides a brand new photographic record of the entire ship, complete with a newly commissioned set of detailed plans.

Praise
  • "This is a grand revision of an earlier book by Andrew Lambert on HMS Warrior. This new edition offers a broadside of color photographs of the meticulously restored ship…Elegant…Certainly a fit introduction to the Warrior of 1860, [the book] artfully accomplishes its primary goals. It certainly makes most of us think of a trip to Portsmouth." — Nautical Research Journal
  • “This book is an excellent read and a fitting tribute to a magnificent ship.” — Warship 2012
  • HMS Warrior 1860 is an impressive history of Britain’s first seagoing ironclad, serving at once as a pleasure to read and as an essential reference. Whether or not you own the first edition, this one is well worth buying.” — International Journal of Maritime History
  • “The book is a good read and is exceedingly well illustrated with images including historic and recent photographs and lithographs of several ships in addition to Warrior…It gives a good account of the challenges faced in preserving the vessel and may explain why such projects are not often undertaken.” — The Northern Mariner
