HMS Warrior 1860: Victoria's Ironclad Deterrent
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.
