John McKay - The 100-Gun Ship Victory (Anatomy of the Ship)
Conway Maritime Press | 2000 | ISBN: 0851777988 | 121 pages | PDF | 8.78 MB
Forever associated with Nelson's last battle, HMS Victory is one of the most famous ships of all time, and is now preserved as a major part pf the Royal Naval Museum in Portsmouth. The ship's survival is particularly appropriate since Victory is not only an example of the ultimate sailing warship - the three decker First Rate - but was also the most popular and successful 100-gun ship of the period. Forty years old by the time of Trafalgar, she had been the flagship of half a dozen famous admirals, and was to continue in active service until 1812.
