HMS Warrior – Ironclad by author Wynford Davies will be available in paperback in the UK on 17 March 2011 and in the US in April.
HMS Warrior, launched in 1860, was the first iron-hulled, sea-going armoured ship, and for many years was the most powerful warship in the world. Rescued a century later from her role as a refuelling hulk, she became the object of the most ambitious ship restoration project ever mounted and is now afloat and open to visitors at Portsmouth. As is the case for many historic ships, however, there is a surprising shortage of informative and well illustrated guides, for reference during a visit or for research by enthusiasts ship modellers, naval buffs, technical historians or students.
