Coming Soon: In Search of Victory
In October 1744 a ferocious storm swept down the English Channel. Caught in the tempest was the largest and finest warship in the world. Her name was Victory and she was the flagship of a mighty British fleet made up of 25 men-of-war. Every other ship made it through the storm safely, but Victory sank virtually without a trace.
Though the Navy searched extensively for her wreckage, she was nowhere to be found. Her whereabouts remained an enduring mystery until 2008 when a shipwreck hunting company found her remains while surveying the Channel floor. Now, as plans unfold to return her to the surface, she is beginning to give up her secrets, allowing us a new perspective on how and why she was lost. This book charts the thrilling history of Victory: her sailors, her adventures, her loss and her re-discovery.
