ROYAL NAVY SUBMARINE OWNER'S WORKSHOP MANUAL 1945 TO 1973 ('A' Class-HMS Alliance)
An insight into the design, construction and operation of a Cold War diesel-electric submarine
Autore: Peter Goodwin
Presenta il disegno, la costruzione, gli armamenti, e la vita a bordo di un sommergibile della Royal Navy classe ‘A’.
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. 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.
