On 19th July 1545, Henry VIII watched his favourite warship the Mary Rose sink before his very eyes. Twenty years ago, in 1982, the hull of the Mary Rose was raised off Portsmouth, an event that is commemorated in this book. This study is based around letters, many of which have never been published before, and documents such as despatches written from the ship, as well as contemporary accounts, bringing us closer than ever to the ship and its crew, so many of whom lost their lives when the ship sank. Excerpts from the letters and documents are drawn together by a lively narrative written by Knighton and Loades which provides the historical framework of events.
