The first iron-hulled, sea-going armoured ship, HMS Warrior was also the fastest and most powerful warship in the world when it was launched in 1860, but nevertheless obsolete and sidelined by the Royal Navy within 10 years. This informative profile of the preserved vessel (now open to the public in Portsmouth Harbour) includes an historical introduction, explanation of the design and construction, and a comprehensive photographic survey of the ship illustrating all significant features, inside and out.
