The Portsmouth Dockyard Story : From 1212 to the Present Day Paperback


The importance of Portsmouth in the annals of British naval history cannot be overstated.

Here Paul Brown seeks to fill the gaps left by other histories and tell the full story for the first time.

Complemented by extensive illustrations, this work embraces the history since the first dockyard in 1212 to the present day naval base and historic dockyard, covering the technical, organisational and social aspects of the story.

From the late 18th century to the early 20th century Portsmouth was Britain's premier dockyard and naval base and the largest industrial organisation in the world; now it is one of the country's leading tourist attractions.

Drawing on original research, combined with data from authoritative secondary sources, this exciting new book is intended to be the most comprehensive history of Portsmouth Dockyard ever published.
