Rated TBC by the BBFC


Part of the military documentary series examining each aspect of the armed forces. This volume looks at the history of the battleship, from its dominance of the world's navies in the late nineteenth century, to their increasing irrelevance in the face of air power during the Second World War. Even so, battleships are still used in great numbers today, and the documentary includes footage of ships that were used in the 1991 Gulf War.
