By Peter Goodwin
Former submariner and historian Peter Goodwin gives HMS Alliance the Haynes Manual treatment, examining in detail her construction and restoration,
Launched in 1945 and commissioned two years later, submarine HMS Alliance was built for service with the Royal Navy in the Far East. Alliance had a long and distinguished career of more than 28 years that took her all over the world. Today, Alliance is the centrepiece at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, Gosport, where the submarine experience is brought to life by tours around the boat.

Order fulfilled as expected
Worked in the day with a long time ex submariner and remember one Sunday he was called to the gatehouse where an ex officer had come to get his memories prior to writing a book.
One reason for purchasing this book was to remind me of the fact that we took my grandfather (Pop) down to the sumbmarine museum in Gosport to show hime this boat - a more modern submarine than those he served in during and after the first World War. Pop loved it but thought it very modern! I reminded him that it was launched in the same year I was born and that more modern boats such as Polaris, with which I was familiar, were themselves becoming obsolecent.
Pop learnt his trade on a 'Holland' boat and went on to serve as a 'Fore-endsman' (torpedo man) in HMSm E45 (a minelayer) through to 1919 and later on HMSm M-1 until 1925.
This as a wonderful volume and lives up to the best tradition of Haynes. I can highly recommend it.
