Synopsis : 'It is good to see this book back in print . . . a distinguished contribution to the canon of alternate histories.' - Gary Sheffield in Military History

The question 'what if' Germany had invaded the British Isles has long preoccupied writers, but none have dealt with the subject as comprehensively and effectively as Norman Longmate.

Based on a classic television film of the same name, If Britain Had Fallen covers every phase of the subject, from the German pre-invasion maneuvering and preparations, the landing of troops, to the German seizure of power.

What follows is a fascinating contemplation of what it would have been like to live day to day under German occupation, creating a new reality that is thoroughly believable and thus all the more frightening.

What would have happened to the King and the Government? Would America, Canada or Australia come to the rescue? Would the British people have come to accept the occupation? Would the deportation of friends, the flying of the swastika from Buckingham Palace incite passive compliance, or brave resistance?

All these questions and more are explored to their full in this thought provoking and chilling pastiche of the centuries most enduring and darkest episodes. This is a classic book, with fresh material from Norman Longmate.
