Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 50 years that separated HMS Warrior from Dreadnought there was a revolution in warship design unparalleled in naval history. It was a period that began with the fully rigged broadside ironclads and ended with the emergence of the great battleships and battle cruisers of World War I. Noted naval historian D.K. Brown explains how the Victorian Royal Navy, far from being the reactionary body it is often depicted to be, was, in fact, at the forefront of technological change.

Synopsis:

In a book that focuses on the Victorian Era of the British Royal Navy, the author shows how warship technology improved in leaps and bounds over a matter of decades. Reprint.

About the Author
