Second Hand & Rare Books

The Third Reich was just 25 miles away from Britain, exercising for its invasion on the beaches and in the harbour where cross-Channel vessels now land, with hundreds of landing vessels ready to land on the Kent and Sussex coasts. Why did the invasion not proceed? What were Britain's plans to repel the invaders? What advice was Hitler receiving? The invasion was called off after the German High Command order for it to proceed. This volume explains the weeks leading up to the invasion that never happened.
