The year 2014 marks the bicentenary of Pembroke Dock. This book looks at the ships created during the 112-year history of the dockyard, covering their construction, careers and, in many cases, their demise as well. During those years, nearly 300 ships were built at Pembroke Dock, the only Royal Naval dockyard ever to exist in Wales, but only two major conflicts took place, so most Pembroke ships served in the constant series of skirmishes that marked the growth of the British Empire. These small colonial engagements helped give the Royal Navy a standing that has hardly ever been equalled, before or since, and provide fascinating stories for the reader. In this book, well known Welsh historian and broadcaster Phil Carradice tells these stories, focussing on the frigates, sloops, gunboats and, occasionally, battleships from Pembroke Dockyard and their crews who fought them.
