More Description

H.M.S. Warrior, 'the black snake among rabbits' was Britain's first iron-clad warship. The author describes this most revolutionary warship of her time, perhaps of all time, explains why she fell into disuse and, in doing so, covers some of the wider issues relating to naval warfare during this important period of British history. The book has special appeal now as the restoration of the ship nears completion and plans are developed to move her to the maritime museum in Portsmouth.
