Seven ships named Victory have carried the name in Royal Navy service, with the first being Sir John Hawkins' ship at the Battle of the Armada and the seventh, and current, HMS Victory having been the flagship of Admiral Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Both the first and the last have therefore saved England at a time of extreme peril.

Nelson’s Victory which is still in commission at Portsmouth as the flagship of the Second Sea Lord and Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command, Vice Admiral Sir James Burnell-Nugent, is the main subject of this forthcoming book.

Product Description:

With the approach of the 200th anniversary of the Royal Navy's greatest battle off Cape Trafalgar on 21 October 1805, much attention is being given to the most tangible symbol of that epic engagement--Nelson's fully preserved flagship HMS Victory. Noted historian Peter Goodwin, Keeper and Curator of Victory, offers a fresh approach to the subject in this book by delving into the workings of the famed ship with a lively question-and-answer format based on thousands of inquiries submitted by visitors and historians alike. Selecting 101 of the most intriguing questions, Goodwin provides full and detailed responses on the types of wood used in building Victory, why she was named Victory, her longest voyage, the amount of shot fired from her guns at Trafalgar, and when her career as a fighting ship ended. This new volume will be enjoyed by age-of-sail buffs and researchers seeking a new reference work on the only surviving line-of-battle ship of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.

One of the world's best-known warships, HMS Victory was the flagship of Lord Nelson at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Still a commissioned vessel, she lies today at Portsmouth, England, where thousands visit her each year. Many marvel at her beauty and wonderful state of preservation, the result of the extraordinary work lavished on her over the past two hundred years. A must for Nelson enthusiasts, historians, and preservationists, this book tells the story of the painstaking historical research and fine craftsmanship that restored the ship to its age-of-sail glory. The narrative of the restoration is accompanied by two hundred recently commissioned drawings that show the ship as it was in 1805 and a hundred paintings and photographs. In addition to the technical details of construction and fittings, the book describes the Victory's fabled career and what life on board was like for the officers and crew.

Product Description:
For those interested in the men who made Britain’s greatest naval victory possible this reference work, compiled from original sources, breaks new ground. Surprisingly, this is the first book to encompass a detailed roll of every officer and man who served on Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, to also include a comprehensive casualty listing (killed and wounded) together with a detailed roll of awards.'The text gives an insight into such things as: the wage structure for every rank, the medical treatment received in action, and the type of clothing and its cost worn by the lower deck. It also incorporates many detailed rolls of all rewards official and unofficial gained by officers and men of HMS Victory for Trafalgar.'An expanded roll of the NGS medals to Victory, is coupled with information on the missing naval medals of the pensioners from the Greenwich Naval Hospital. Also noted are recipients of the Naval Gold Medal, the Parliamentary Grant, Naval Prize Money, Lloyds Patriotic Fund Swords and Silver Vases, granted for service with the fleet at Trafalgar.'The chapter on the duties and trades of the various ranks gives an insight into the workings of a man-of-war. The biographical section covers some 60 crew members and includes promotions gained for the Trafalgar action. This book at last fills a gap in the Trafalgar story, and will be essential for those who wish for family or historical reasons to check if an individual actually served with Lord Nelson on HMS Victory; now the answer is here.'
