Summary

Much has been written about HMS Victory, but it is often simplistic and romanticised or clearly aimed at the technical requirements of the naval historian. In Nelson's Victory, Peter Goodwin adopts a fresh and accessible approach to explain the workings of our only surviving line-of-battle ship from the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.
He structures the book as a Question & Answer session, whereby he draws upon his extensive knowledge of the sailing warship as well as his experience as Keeper & Curator of Victory herself to respond to 101 of the most pertinent questions relating to all aspects of the ship and her illustrious career, from her structure to shipboard life, to the continuing restoration in No. 2 Dock in Portsmouth. His answers are further enhanced by a selection of 120 illustrations and diagrams, all of which makes this book an essential companion for any enthusiast of Admiral Lord Nelson, his famous flagship and the Battle of Trafalgar.
