A great detailed account of the events leading up to the discovery and eventual lifting of the Mary Rose. Very interesting, especially the bits about John Deane and his watercolours, and dispersing the Royal George. Anything you want to know about the ship is here. Recommended.

This is the most accessible account of the Mary Rose. It is very detailed and gives a great idea of what an endurance exercise the whole thing became.

This book was published by Gorgi in 1965 and has no ISBN number that I can find, so probably out of print. However it is easily available in second hand stores, so you should not have to much trouble getting hold of it.
Although factual it reads a bit like a novel and gives you a good flavour of all the interlinking events. Very usefull.
This book was written in 1974 for the Naval Institute Press. As such it is detailed and authoritative, and gives you a good grasp of what all the different protagonists were doing and thinking. The style is a bit stiff, but the extraordinary events overcome this, and make the book essential reading. Lots of good B/W photo’s.
