The H.M.S. Temeraire, one of Britain s most illustrious fighting
ships, is known to millions through J. M. W. Turner s masterpiece,
The Fighting Temeraire (1839), which portrays the battle-scarred
veteran of Britain s wars with Napoleonic France. In this evocative
new volume, Sam Willis tells the extraordinary story of the vessel
behind the painting.
This tale of two ships spans the heyday of the age of sail: the
climaxes of both the Seven Years War (1756 63) and the Napoleonic
Wars (1798 1815). Filled with richly evocative detail, and narrated
with the pace and gusto of a master storyteller, The Fighting
Temeraire is an enthralling and deeply satisfying work of narrative
