About the Lecture

New technologies enabled the development of armored warships. The naval race between France and Great Britain prompted the rapid evolution of ship designs to counter new uses of propulsion, gun platform layout, and hull design, including the ironclads HMS Warrior, Captain, and Devastation. These advances set the stage for the development of dreadnoughts in the 20th century.
