Description :
SEALION, the German invasion plan, provoked the construction of pillboxes, anti-tank stop-lines and islands, coastal defences, heavy-gun emplacements and anti-aircraft batteries, as well as the formation of the Home Guard and covert groups.
New threats replaced SEALION: radar detection systems were expanded during the Blitz years, as were intelligence-gathering systems and listening posts. In 1944 and 1945, Britain was once again faced with a new and deadly threat,Hitler's 'Vengeance weapons'.
"British Home Defences 194045" provides a concise assessment of Britain's defensive systems, and presents a vivid picture of war on the home front.
