Great Britain has long survived on the excellence of its ships and its sailors, and the great names are familiar to us all. Less well-known is the story of the development of these ships and of the men who designed and made them. This is the story Mr. Blake tells, starting with the primitive vessels of Elizabethan times and leading on to the present day and the magnificent performance of the British shipbuilding industry in the war of 1939-1945, when - to give one example - the Clyde alone was turning round one hundred ships a week, both new ships launched and damaged ships repaired.
