Transport Ship
A troopship (also troop ship or troop transport or trooper) is a ship used to carry soldiers, either in peacetime or wartime. Operationally, standard troopships – often drafted from commercial shipping fleets – cannot land troops directly on shore, typically loading and unloading at a seaport or onto smaller vessels, either tenders or barges. Attack transports, a variant of ocean-going troopship adapted to transporting invasion forces ashore, carry their own fleet of landing craft. Landing ships beach themselves and bring their troops directly ashore.Contents1 History 2 World War II2.1 Designation3 Post-World War II 4 Some notable troopships 5 References5.1 Bibliography 5.2 Notes6 External linksHistory[edit] Ships to transport troops were already used in Antiquity

Brig
A brig is a sailing vessel with two square-rigged masts. During the Age of Sail, brigs were seen as fast and maneuverable and were used as both naval warships and merchant vessels. They were especially popular in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Brigs fell out of use with the arrival of the steam ship because they required a relatively large crew for their small size and were difficult to sail into the wind. Their rigging differs from that of a brigantine, which has a gaff-rigged mainsail while a brig has a square mainsail with an additional gaff-rigged spanker behind the mainsail.Contents1 Rigging 2 Hull material 3 Development of the brig 4 Historic usage 5 Historic examples 6 Brigs in fiction 7 Modern recreations 8 See also 9 References 10 External linksRigging[edit]A typical brig sail planIn sailing, a full-rigged brig is a vessel with two square rigged masts (fore and main).[2] The main mast of a brig is the aft one

Palmerston, KG, GCB, PC, FRS (20 October 1784 – 18 October 1865), was a British statesman who served twice as Prime Minister in the mid-19th century.

Man-of-war
The man-of-war (pl. men-of-war; also man of war, man-o'-war, man o' war, or simply man)[1][2] was a British Royal Navy
Royal Navy
expression for a powerful warship or frigate from the 16th to the 19th century. The term often refers to a ship armed with cannon and propelled primarily by sails, as opposed to a galley which is propelled primarily by oars. The man-of-war was developed in Portugal in the early 15th century from earlier roundships with the addition of a second mast to form the carrack. The 16th century saw the carrack evolve into the galleon and then the ship of the line. The evolution of the term has been given thus:Man-of-war. "A phrase applied to a line of battle ship, contrary to the usual rule in the English language by which all ships are feminine. It probably arose in the following manner: 'Men of war' were heavily armed soldiers
