The Alert was one of many armed cutters that were used to supplement the British fleet between 1763 and 1835, and these small swift vessels were generally employed in minor roles such as conveying dispatches, routine patrol work and reconnaissance. Alert was constructed in Dover in 1777 an d was captured by the French in July 1778 while acting as escort for Keppel's fleet off Ushant. The 'Anatomy of the Ship' series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. What makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details, photos and a record of the ship's service history.

He has written two other 'Anatomy of the Ship' volumes, The 20-Gun Ship Blandford and The Bomb Vessel Granado. His other Conway books include Nelson's Ships, and The Construction and Fitting of the Sailing Man of War 1650-1850. He has been the Keeper and Curator of HMS Victory for over ten years.
