For almost two hundred years the ship of the line was the dominant fighting machine on the seas. That is why they always attract the attention of everyone interested in the naval history. This video presents an examination of the legendary flagship with the name directly associated with the famous Lord Nelson - HMS Victory.

Note that we have a very interesting publication dedicated to HMS Victory, it belongs to the Anatomy of the Ship series. HMS Victory was launched in 1765 and decommissioned in 1872, after so many years of the brilliant and victorious service, best known for the major role played in the famous and epic Battle of Trafalgar.
