IF THE KAISER COMES Defence Against German Invasion of Britain in the First World War


The perceived threat of invasion, whether justified or not, persisted throughout the First World War, and this book describes the measures taken to protect Britain against enemy. Much of this book is a detailed study of approaches to, and structures of, British defence in the Great War. It at times technical in nature, going into the design and construction of fixed defence measures such as pill boxes. The role of the army and the navy also receive separate chapters, as does the role of aviation, these cover the various operational approaches to defence deployed in Britain. An interesting account, one that will appeal to those interested in the geographic and technical development of defences such as pill boxes.
