An example of the ultimate sailing warship--the three-decker First Rate-Victory was the most popular and successful 100-gun ship of the period, and the flagship of Nelson at Trafalgar. First published in 1987 in the acclaimed Anatomy of the Ship series, 100 Gun Ship Victory is now available in paperback for the first time. The titles in this series are acknowledged for the detailed information they provide about historic ships and this volume presents detailed descriptions and illustrations of the HMS Victory, including a pictorial section with numerous close-up photographs and on-board views of ship equipment and spaces. Three hundred perspective and three-view drawings, with fully descriptive keys, illustrate every detail of the ship, including hull construction, masts and yards, armament, rigging, decoration and fittings. These accurate and comprehensive drawings offer ship buffs, historians, and model makers a full view of the ship and her position in the development of the First Rate.
