Launched in 1945 and commissioned two years later, submarine HMS Alliance was built for service with the Royal Navy in the Far East. Alliancehad 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. Former submariner and historian Peter Goodwin gives Alliance the Haynes Manual treatment, examining in detail her construction and restoration, and describing what it was like to live, work and go to war in a submarine.

Peter K. Goodwin served in the Royal Navy before pursuing a career as a maritime historian and author. He was appointed the first Keeper and Curator of HMS Victory in 1991. Peter has also worked as historical advisor for the film Master and Commander and the Hornblower series.
