Another book by John McKay - this highly-rated book was written with the ultimate intention to tell you the truly captivating story of the famous HMS Victory, which is reputed as one of the greatest and important naval ships in the history, whose name will be always associated by people with the last battle of Admiral Nelson, the most successful and truly legendary naval commander in the history, who died on board HMS Victory, his flagship.

The book provides description of the vessel, many pictures and about three hundred perfect and informative drawings addressing the hull construction, rigging, armament, fittings etc. You will know the remarkable story of this ship, starting straight from her construction and the years of brilliant service - did you know she was not decommissioned and, though not involved in any activities today, is still the longest serving war ship in the world!

The publication is ideally suited to serve as the reference source for the naval history researchers, and as the guidance for ship modelers willing to try and build the model of arguably the most famous ship in the naval history. The excellence of the images included in the book is eclipsed by the extra-class standard of technical sketches and drawings.
