9780857330857: HMS Victory Manual 1765-1812: An Insight into Owning, Operating and Maintaining the Royal Navy's Oldest and Most Famous Warship (Owners' Workshop Manual)

Using the tried and tested formula HMS Victory, now available in the Haynes manual format, is probably the most famous surviving historic warship in the world today. She was flagship to Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, when he was killed on her quarter deck by a sniper’s bullet in Britain’s hour of victory. Maritime historian and former HMS Victory Keeper and Curator Peter Goodwin tells the story of Nelson’s flagship, giving fascinating insights into how she was built, her anatomy and weaponry, and how a ship of the line in the Georgian navy was sailed, fought and maintained.

About the Author:

Peter K. Goodwin served in the Royal Navy before pursuing a career as a maritime historian and author. He was appointed the first Keeper and Curator of HMS Victory in 1991. Peter has also worked as historical advisor for the film Master and Commander and the Hornblower series.

Review:

“Don’t let the utilitarian cover art fool you. It’s perfect for the book’s purpose – an owner’s manual. But the exterior merely camouflages a priceless, but exceedingly economical, treasure. While I occasionally give five stars to exceptional books, HMS Victory Owners’ Workshop Manual far exceeds that rating.” - Pirates and Privateers
