HMS Victory: First Rate 1765 (Seaforth Historic Ships)
Автор: Jonathan Eastland Язык материала: Английский
HMS Victory is probably the best-known historic ship in the world. A symbol of the Royal Navy s achievements during the great age of sail, she is based in Portsmouth and seen by tens of thousands of visitors each year. 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, historians or students. This new series redresses the gap. Written by experts and containing more than 200 specially commissioned photographs, each title will take the reader on a superbly illustrated tour of the ship, from bow to stern and deck by deck.
