Britain's Historic Ships (Paperback)

Paul Brown

-  

Passionately written by Paul Brown, this lavish book explores 20 of the most celebrated and accessible ships in Britain and explains how they have helped to shape the nation.

Britain has a long and rich seafaring history that stretches right back to the time of Drake and Nelson. Although much of this is recorded in literature and in museums, there's nothing better than looking at the preserved and restored monuments to discover their true past.

Presented in order of each ship's launch date, each entry is written by the acknowledged expert on a particular vessel, giving full specification details. The book is also sumptuously illustrated with contemporary photographs and historical illustrations.

Among the vessels featured at the Mary Rose, HMS Victory and the Cutty Sark.
