May 2015 is the 250th anniversary of the launch of HMS Victory. While many books have been written about Nelson’s flagship at Trafalgar, none tell the full story of the ship since she first took to the waters in 1765. Nelson’s Victory also tells the story of Horatio Nelson, who was born a few weeks before his most famous ship was ordered, and whose career paralleled hers in many ways. While offering new insights on the battle of Trafalgar, this book says much more about the ship’s life as a flagship, a fighting ship, a prison hospital ship, a training ship, a floating courtroom, a signal school, a tourist attraction, and a national icon.
