Located on the River Medway, in all, the yard was responsible for the construction of over 500 warships, these ranging from simple naval pinnaces through to first-rates that fought at Trafalgar, and concluding with the hunter-killer submarines of the nuclear age. In this detailed new history of the yard from experienced local and maritime author Philip MacDougall, particular attention is given to the final two hundred years of the yard’s history, the artisans and labourers who worked there and the changing methods used in the construction of some of the finest warships to enter naval service. Coinciding with the dockyard’s seeking status as a World Heritage site, this fascinating history places Chatham firmly in its overall historical context.     Download (7.6 MB) WW1 at Sea: An Introduction to: WW1 at Sea Us Nuclear Submarines: The Fast Attack (osprey New Vanguard 138) The Battle of Trafalgar (Pen &Sword Military Classics) The U-Boats (The Seafarers) Routledge Handbook of Naval Strategy and Security Load more posts
