About This Book

Between June 1940 and the spring of 1941 Britain was covered by a vast system of anti-invasion defences. The legacy of these defences can still be seen across the landscape - anti-tank gun emplacements, pillboxes, spigot mortars, coastal gun batteries, anti-tank blocks and anti-tank ditches. In this second volume, written by public demand to accompany his critically-acclaimed book on the south and south-eastern defences, the author uses his unrivalled knowledge of 1940 to chart the defensive landscapes of the north, south-west and midlands of England. Written in anecdotal style, this is an entertaining as well as comprehensive account of the relevant sites.
