Armstrong: The Life and Mind of an Armaments Maker


Categories: ,


By Kenneth Warren


William George Armstrong was one of the leading and most successful of Great Britain’s nineteenth century engineers. At Elswick he began a career in mechanical and civil engineering, moving into armaments, and then on to naval and, at Walker, mercantile shipbuilding. In the later decades of the Victorian age his company was the only British firm comparable in size and range to Krupp of Essen, and by the end of his life Armstrong Whitworth was probably the largest industrial concern in Britain.
