By Peter Goodwin (Author)

This pocket manual is a complete and concise guide to one of the world’s most famous warships, Admiral Nelson’s fully preserved flagship HMS Victory. Author Peter Goodwin adopts a fresh approach to explain the workings of the most tangible symbol of the Royal Navy’s greatest battle off Cape Trafalgar. In doing so, he answers questions such as “What types of wood were used in building Victory? What was her longest voyage? When did her career as a fighting ship come to an end?” The book also includes pertinent and varied selections of contemporary documents and records to explain the day-to-day running of a three-decker Georgian warship.
