History of the Temeraire from the original seized from the French by the English in the Seven Years War till the newly built ship with the namesake in the Battle of Trafalgar and the ship's inevitable decline till it's scrapping. Includes a couple of chapters on the painting by J Turner along with other poems. The history reads as a narrative and is well done. Recommended for anyone who has interest in the subject.
