Lamentable Intelligence from the Admiralty: The Sinking of the HMS Vanguard in 1875
Dublin: Nonsuch Publishing, 2006. 192 pages. Illustrated. Paperback.
HMS Vanguard sank in thick fog in Dublin Bay in September 1875, rammed by her sister ship. The book provides valuable insight into the naval history of the late nineteenth century, describes the furore caused by the unjust verdict of the Court Martial, and the tragic effect on Captain Richard Dawkins and his family.
