Description
The H.M.S. Temeraire, one of Britain's most illustrious fighting ships, is widely known through J.M.W. Turner's 1839 masterpiece, The Fighting Temeraire, which portrays the battle-scarred veteran of the Napoleonic Wars in the glow of sunset. In this history, Sam Willis tells the extraordinary story of the vessel behind the painting and the making of the painting itself. Turner's Temeraire was named in honor of her predecessor, an illustrious ship of the Seven Years War, and herself achieved fame by breaking through the French and Spanish line directly astern of Nelson's flagship Victory at Trafalgar in 1805, saving the Vice-Admiral at a crucial moment in the battle. Boasting 36 pages of color illustrations, this tale of the two Temeraires spans the heyday of the age of sail, an era when Britannia ruled the seas.
