Robert Gardiner, Andrew Lambert - Steam, Steel & Shellfire: The Steam Warship 1815-1905 (Conway's History of the Ship)
Conway Maritime Press | 1994 | ISBN: 0851775640 | English | 191 pages | PDF | 221.28 MB

Between 1840 and 1905, sail was replaced by steam, wooden hull construction with iron and then steel, and the shell-firing gun encouraged the adoption of armor plate. For this first time, this volume - the fourth in an ambitious series - offers a proper understanding of this neglected, misunderstood but fascinating period in shipbuilding.
