Product Description

Review

“Don’t let the utilitarian cover art fool you. It’s perfect for the book’s purpose – an owner’s manual. But the exterior merely camouflages a priceless, but exceedingly economical, treasure. While I occasionally give five stars to exceptional books, HMS Victory Owners’ Workshop Manual far exceeds that rating.” - Pirates and Privateers

About the Author

Peter K. Goodwin served in the Royal Navy before pursuing a career as a maritime historian and author. He was appointed the first Keeper and Curator of HMS Victory in 1991. Peter has also worked as historical advisor for the film Master and Commander and the Hornblower series.

HMS Victory Manual 1765-1812: An Insight into Owning, Operating and Maintaining the Royal Navy's Oldest and Most Famous WarshipI am building a model of the HMS Victory. This book is a treasure trove of details and photographs. It is exactly what I was looking for to get information for my model. The price is very reasonable, and the format is perfect. If you need detailed information for your model of the HMS Victory, buy this book. Message to Haynes - I hope you have more of these books in the works!

It just doesn't get any better than this for fans of this great old ship! This is a detailed account of the building and sailing of HMS Victory, illustrated by some outstanding colour photography. I am totally satisfied with this purchase.

Tons of information about the HMS Victory. Great illustrations and drawings. The photos could have been of better quality, but still - great book for the price.

An interesting look at "live history" I enjoyed the historical significance of the ship.
