If Hitler Comes: Preparing for Invasion: Scotland 1940., Barclay, Gordon.
1 Barclay, Gordon. If Hitler Comes: Preparing for Invasion: Scotland 1940.
Birlinn, 2013. 9781843410621 2013 1843410621 / 9781843410621 1st Edition Soft cover Very Good Book 
Paperback in Very Good condition with slightly faded front cover. First edition, ppxviii, 318, b&w illustrations, maps and figures. With notes and index. Between May 1940 and the summer of 1941 the British people expected a German invasion that, had it succeeded, would have enslaved them into the Nazis racist war. This period saw an unparalleled effort to prepare the defence of the UK against invasion. Scotland s nationally important heavy industries, vital Royal Navy bases, and one of the UK s key ports, were very vulnerable to the sort of airborne attack that had devastated the defences of Belgium. Everyone was certain that a Fifth Column of Nazi sympathisers and agents was working actively to spread rumours and despair, and to aid the invasion forces, and in reality the country was far from united. Although the 1939 - 45 War is the most written-about war in history there is no account of the heroic efforts made in those months to prepare Scotland for the inevitable invasion, and how the defences were intended to be used. This book tells that story, against the wider history of the period and its people, and describes what was built, and what now survives. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS MAY BE REQUIRED. S16.

Chatto & Windus 1991 0701138017 / 9780701138011 1st English Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 
Hardcover in blue cloth covered boards with some light shelfwearm dustwrapper with some small closed tears internally repaired and now enclosed in a clear archival wrap. First English edition, pp 318, b&w illustrations, notes, index. Chapman Pincher called "Sonya" "the most successful agent-runner of all time", but this daring, courageous woman has remained an enigma, hunted and maligned by the spy-writers of the West. In this book, she tells her own story. She describes her youth in Germany, Shanghai in the 1930s, training in Moscow, radioing at night on home-built transmitters from Japanese Manchuria and running networks in Poland and Switzerland. In the midst of war, with three children, she came to Oxford, to work within earshot of M15 and she helped Klaus Fuchs to pass the West's atomic secrets to Moscow. "Sonya's Report" is now translated for the first time with new material on the Fuchs affair and on her feeling about her life's work.
