Built to underline Victorian Britain's supremacy at sea, HMS Warrior was the world's first iron-hulled, armored warship. In 1979 she was rescued from ignominy as an oil jetty in Milford Haven to become the subject of an ambitious restoration programme, and for the last twenty years has been open to the public at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. The story of her revolutionary design, career history and the strange twists of fate that enabled her to survive into an age when her significance in naval architecture would be fully recognized, is described in detail together with the meticulous research that went into faithfully restoring every aspect of the ship.
