Designed and built to challenge an aggressive French shipbuilding program in the late 1850s, when commissioned, the 40-gun, steam-powered, ironclad HMS Warrior was the largest warship in the world. The revolutionary design housed the main guns, 10 boilers, and steam engine inside an impregnable armored “box”, or citadel, made from 4½in thick wrought iron plates. Warrior is the only surviving example of Britain’s “Black Battlefleet”--the 45 iron hulls built for the Royal Navy between 1861 and 1877. She was restored in the 1980s and is now on public display at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

David Hughes enjoyed a long career as a secondary-school teacher and his pupils used to say of him that although he was not always right, by golly he was never wrong. He is certainly never one to follow fashions blindly or to accept without thinking the views of those around him. He is always prepared to listen carefully to the arguments of others. He likes a good debate. He is always asking questions. Here he expounds the common-sense ideas he has formed about humankind and the world of today and he attempts to explain why so many of the changes he has seen during his lifetime have not been for the better.

HMS Warrior, launched in 1860, was the first iron-hulled, sea-going armoured ship, and for many years was the most powerful warship in the world. Rescued a century later from her role as a refuelling hulk, she became the object of the most ambitious ship restoration project ever mounted and is now afloat and open to visitors at Portsmouth.??As is the case for many historic ships, however, there is a surprising shortage of informative and well illustrated guides, for reference during a visit or for research by enthusiasts _ ship modellers, naval buffs, technical historians or students. This new series redresses the gap. ??Written by experts and containing more than 200 specially commissioned photographs, each title takes the reader on a superbly illustrated tour of the ship, deck by deck. Significant parts of the vessel _ for example, the steering gear, armament and armour, engine-room and gundeck _ are given detailed coverage so that the reader has at hand the most complete visual record and explanation of the ship that is at present available.??In addition, the importance of the ship, both in her own time and now as a museum vessel, is explained, while her design and build, her service career and her life prior to restoration and exhibition are all described.??The Seaforth Historic Ship Series is a truly groundbreaking concept, bringing the ships of our past vividly to life.

The 4 1/2 litre Bentley is one of the most iconic pre-war cars, and the super charged 4 1/2 litre “blower” Bentley is today one of the most sought-after and most valuable cars for collectors. The “Bentley Boys” won several high-profiles races in Bentleys, and Woolf Barnato and Bernardo Rubin won with a 4 1/2 litre car in 1928. Five supercharged “Blower” Bentleys were built to compete at Le Mans, but the car’s Achilles Heel was its reliability, and it never won the 24-hour race. This Manual provides details of the 4 1/2 litre unsupercharged and “Blower” Bentley racing cars, detailing their period racing history, anatomy and engineering, and provides an insight into owning, maintaining, and running an example of this iconic card today. Illustrated with period photographs and design and engineering material, plus photographs of restored examples in use today.
