British Battleships of the Victorian Era

Norman Friedman

By the end of Queen Victoria’s reign wooden sailing vessels of the type that fought the Battle of Trafalgar had been superseded by steam-powered, iron-clad battleships. What remained unchanged was Britain’s dominance of the seas. This illustrated history follows the technical innovations in shipbuilding, the replacement of small muzzle-loading cannon with massive guns firing explosive shells, Admiralty strategy, and the arms race with the French.
