Launched in 1860, Warrior was the first ever iron-hulled, sea-going armoured ship, and for a number of years was the most powerful warship in the world. By a fluke of history the ship also survived to be the last of the broadside ironclads, and was rescued from an obscure existence as a refuelling hulk in West Wales to become the subject of the most ambitious ship restoration project ever mounted. To satisfy the modelmaker, enthusiast and technical historian, the book is illustrated in depth with many of the plans drawn up for the reconstruction, as well as numerous photographs of the ship and her fittings taken during her service career and during reconstruction.
