Battleships tells the dramatic story of fighting ships, from ancient triremes powered by banks of oars, through the powerful ships of the line in the days of sail, to the first armoured battleships and beyond. The historic battles featured include Salamis in 480 BCE (won by outnumbered Greek forces), Trafalgar (1805) and Jutland (1916), along with major encounters of World War II. The workings of a modern warship, aircraft carrier and stealth frigate are also shown in fascinating detail.
