Summary

Rob Bell reveals the secrets of the historic ships that shaped the nation. He begins with the story of HMS Victory, Admiral Nelson's personal flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. When Victory was built more than 40 years previously, she was the largest warship in the world with firepower equivalent to a whole army on land. However, Rob discovers that this titan of the seas was very nearly scrapped long before the battle that would ultimately seal her place in history.
