Beating the Nazi Invader is a revealing and disturbing exploration of the darker history of Nazis, spies and ‘Fifth Columnist’ saboteurs in Britain and the extensive top secret counter-measures taken before and during the real threat of invasion in 1940.
The author’s research describes the Nazi Party organisation in Britain and reveals the existence of the Gestapo headquarters in central London. The reader gains vivid insights into Nazi agents and terrorist cells, the Special Branch and MI5 teams who hunted them and investigated murders believed to have been committed by Third Reich agents on British soil.
Accessing a host of recently de-classified files the book explores the highly classified measures taken for the protection of the Royal Family, national treasures and gold reserves. The British government made extensive plans for the continuation of government in the event of invasion including the creation of all-powerful Regional Commissioners, ‘Black Lists’ of suspected collaborators and a British resistance organisation. We also learn of the Nazis’ own occupation measures for suborning the population and the infamous Sonderfahndungsliste G.B, the Nazi ‘Special Wanted List’.
The result is a fascinating insight into the measures and actions taken to ensure that Great Britain did not succumb to the gravest threat of enemy invasion and occupation for centuries.
