The Great Ships Non-classified

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A four DVD box set which shows an incredible collection of the greatest ships to have patrolled the seas.

From ancient Viking ships to modern aircraft carriers, The Great Ships lets you step on board and explore the design, construction, technology and armaments of history's great vessels of war and peace. Roam majestically over the oceans of the world with everything from the modern aircraft carrier – the largest warship ever to sail the seas acting as the centerpiece of a mighty taskforce – to the battleships that were designed to be the ultimate expression of naval power.
Then there are the nimble cruisers, which have played a crucial role in the world’s navies for the past two centuries thanks to an amazing versatility, as well as the destroyers – some of the fastest and most deadly warships ever built.
Conclude with the dreadnoughts – the battleships that evoke the most awe as both a technical marvel and a potent symbol of national might – and the frigates, vessels that provided both intimidation and protection for the merchant ships that were the lifeblood of maritime trade.

Contains 13 episodes of a series by the History Channel, new and sealed in the original wrapper. Running time approx. 10 hours. An excellent item for ship enthusiasts.
