HMS Victory


HMS Victory
HMS Victory is a 100-gun ship of the line of the line which was launched in 1765.

HMS Victory served in the American War of Independence, during the French Revolutionary Wars, and most famously in the Napoleonic Wars (including as Admiral Nelson's flagship at Trafalgar).

Since 1922, HMS Victory has been located in a dry dock in Portsmouth. Today, HMS Victory is both the flagship of the Royal Navy's Second Sea Lord, and a museum ship.

  • Anova Conway Maritime Press
Product Description:
This new addition to the bestselling pocket book series features Admiral Nelson's fully preserved flagship HMS Victory, the most tangible symbol of the Royal Navy's greatest battle off Cape Trafalgar on October 21st 1805.



In the HMS Victory Pocket Manual, Peter Goodwin adopts a fresh approach to explain the workings of the only surviving "line of battle" ship of the Napoleonic Wars. As Victory was engaged in battle during only two percent of her active service, Peter Goodwin also provides a glimpse into life and work at sea during the other ninety-eight per cent of the time. As technical and historical advisor to the ship in Portsmouth for over twenty years, he is in a unique position to investigate and interpret not only the ship's structure but also the essential aspects of shipboard life: victualing, organization, discipline, domestic arrangements, and medical care.



In his role as keeper and curator of the ship, the author was asked thousands of questions by visitors and historians alike. This volume presents answers to the most important and telling questions.

Product Description:

Using the tried and tested formula HMS Victory, now available in the Haynes manual format, is probably the most famous surviving historic warship in the world today. She was flagship to Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, when he was killed on her quarter deck by a sniper’s bullet in Britain’s hour of victory. Maritime historian and former HMS Victory Keeper and Curator Peter Goodwin tells the story of Nelson’s flagship, giving fascinating insights into how she was built, her anatomy and weaponry, and how a ship of the line in the Georgian navy was sailed, fought and maintained.

Product Description:
HMS Victory was the flagship of Nelson at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805 and today lies at Portsmouth, still a commissioned vessel, where she is visited by thousands each year who marvel at her strength and beauty and her wonderful state of preservation after nearly 200 years of life. This has been achieved through the research and restoration lavished on her over the years and this book describes it all. At the core are 400 drawings which show her as she was in 1805. In addition, the author describes the life on board for the officers and crew and outlines her 200-year career. So this book is both the story of a famous ship's career as well as a technical manual on the construction and fitting and the alterations and restoration of an eighteenth-century man-of-war.

Product Description:
May 2015 is the 250th anniversary of the launch of HMS Victory. While many books have been written about Nelson’s flagship at Trafalgar, none tell the full story of the ship since she first took to the waters in 1765. Nelson’s Victory also tells the story of Horatio Nelson, who was born a few weeks before his most famous ship was ordered, and whose career paralleled hers in many ways. While offering new insights on the battle of Trafalgar, this book says much more about the ship’s life as a flagship, a fighting ship, a prison hospital ship, a training ship, a floating courtroom, a signal school, a tourist attraction, and a national icon.

Product Description:
EVERY Englishman, we imagine, knows that the“VICTORY” was the ship which bore Lord Nelson’s flag, and on board of which he received his death wound in the moment of triumph over the combined fleets of France and Spain, off Cape Trafalgar; but as very few are aware of her numerous and distinguished services, extending over many years, and preceding that sad yet glorious climax, this memoir of her career has been drawn up, with the hope of making her history from her launch to the present time better known; and that the hundreds who yearly visit her may carry away a record of their visit, to remind them of the classic ground they have been treading, and recall to their recollections some of the splendid deeds of the past, which gained for England the proud title of “Mistress of the Seas.”

Product Description:
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:
This is the story of Britain's most illustrious warship, immortalized as Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar. Constructed from the wood of over 6,000 trees, HMS Victory was designed as a "first rate ship," the Admiralty's designation for its largest ships of the line which packed a formidable punch with more than 100 guns arranged on three decks. In addition to the Battle of Trafalgar, HMS Victory saw action in the First and Second Battles of Ushant and during the Battle of Cape St Vincent. After bringing Nelson's body back to England, the Victory sailed out on a number of expeditions until her retirement in 1812. This magnificent ship is now the centerpiece of Portsmouth's historic docks and serves as the oldest naval ship still in commission. HMS Victory provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the British sailors who served on her.
