Launched in 1860 HMS Warrior was the world's first ever iron-hulled, se-going armoured warship, and for a number of years was the most powerful ship afloat. Rescued from an obscure existence as a refuelling hulk in Wales, by a quirk of history she survives today to be the last broadside ironclad. This book details the meticulous reconstruction required in virtually every aspect of the ship, hull and armour plating, machinery, armament, masting and rigging, and internal arrangements and fittings. This process brought forward much new evidence and material on subjects ranging from contemporary metallurgy to the ship-board organisation of mid-Victorian navies. This sort of information has a far wider application than merely to Warrior herself and is a valuable contribution to the wider subject of warship technical development. The book is illustrated in depth with many of the plans drawn for the reconstruction, as well as numerous photographs of the ship and her fittings taken during her service career and during reconstruction.
