Sussex in the early 1940s stood ready to repel an air and sea-borne invasion by a successful German army. John Goodwin, who was there at the time, describes what happened when the military took over the beaches and countryside and set about making the county impregnable, despite huge logistical problems. He explains what forces were available, their shortcomings, and how tactics changed under different army commanders. Regiments, artillery, tanks, weapons, coast batteries, armoured trains, plus naval and army communications, are covered in detail. Chapters on army radar, harbour booms, nets, also land and sea minefields, deal with little known aspects of the Sussex defences. This book is illustrated with over 120 contemporary maps and photographs.
