Beaches, Fields, Streets and Hills: The Anti-Invasion Landscapes of England 1940
York: Council for British Archaeology, 2006. Slight creasing to outer corners of cover, and a crease about a quarter of the way along the spine (from the front). Otherwise a good clean tight copy of this large (9.5'' high by 7'' across by 1.5'' thick) soft-cover book. Deals with the defences built in 1940-41 in England (Scotland and Wales aren't covered in this book), to deal with an expected German invasion, such as pill-boxes, gun emplacements, anti-tank obstacles and more. Covers three strategies: those of coastal defence, area defence, and inland stop-line defence. Based on a two-year project funded by English Heritage studying all those such sites remaining as of the early 2000s. 658pp, 338 b&w illustrations, numerous colour maps.. Paperback. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
