The HMS Victory will always be associated with Nelson’s last battle at Trafalgar.
One of the most famous ships of all time.
Victory was the most popular and successful 100-gun ship of the period, the flagship of half a dozen famous admirals.
First published in 1987 in the Anatomy of the Ship series and now updated, this volume provides the most detailed description and illustrations of the Victory available anywhere.
A pictorial section contains numerous clear photographs emphasizing close-up and on-board views of ship equipment and spaces.
Three hundred perspective and three-view drawings, with fully descriptive keys, illustrate every detail of the ship, including hull construction, masts and yards, armament, rigging, decoration and fittings.
These accurate and totally comprehensive drawings offer ship buffs, historians, and model makers a full view of the ship and her position in the development of the First Rate.
