Product Description:
This study ... is solidly based on pertinent data recorded in the captured German archives. As such, it must be accepted as the definitive work on Hitler's ill-conceived and reluctantly abandoned dream of adding Britain to his European empire. It is also, considering its academic origin, suprizingly crisp and readable.

Five Days in September: The Invasion of England 1940
 
Product Description:
September 1940, the Battle of Britain is over, the Luftwaffe has air superiority over England and the invasion of England has been set in motion. Jimmy Webb and his two lifelong friends, Penny Packard and Harry Hughes, who live in the southeast of England, in a clifftop village between Dover and Folkestone are all involved in the defence of Britain, despite being 17 years old. Jimmy is in the resistance, a member of an Auxiliary Patrol, Harry is a member of the Home Guard whilst Penny has been recruited as a local intelligence agent, a member of the Auxiliary Units Special Duties Branch tasked with reporting on enemy actions, troop movements and the morale of the populace.
Karl Dressler, leader of an SS Assault Group of the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, the crack unit of the Waffen-SS, has been tasked with securing and holding the area between Dover and Folkestone, an area that includes the invasion headquarters. The story of the invasion is told through the eyes of Jimmy, Penny and Karl. The nascent romance between Jimmy and Penny is interrupted by the invasion and the SS Officer also becomes involved with Penny. The invasion has violent and painful consequences for all, bringing the horror of war to English soil.

Invasion: The Alternative History of the German Invasion of England, July 1940
 
Product Description:
'Macksey's blend of what actually happened and what might have been makes for a piece of writing comparable to Frederick Forsyth at his best.' Jack Higgins

'Convincingly described and excellently illustrated.' The Daily Telegraph

In June 1940, German troops massed across the Channel, poised for the invasion of Britain. With France defeated and Britain cowed, Hitler seemed ready for his greatest gamble.

In this brilliant and compelling alternate history the Germans launch the invasion that, in reality, was never more than a plan. Landing between Dover and Hythe, German troops push inland supported by the Luftwaffe and the impregnable panzers, and strike out towards London. The British, desperate to defeat the invaders, rally and prepare for a crucial confrontation – at Maidstone.

Realistic, carefully researched and superbly written, this best-selling study is a classic of alternate history and a thought-provoking look at how Britain's war might have been.

Kindle Edition

Dissolution 1940: A Story of the Nazi Invasion of England
 
Product Description:
Dissolution 1940 is a story of love and war, set against the imagined background of a Nazi invasion and occupation of England.
It is September 1940, and Rosa Winterfield, the matron of a boys’ school in Kent, escapes ahead of the invading German Army with a young Home Guardsman, Jonny Munton. The two survive a terrifying journey, eventually reaching East Anglia. Out of the close intimacy of their ordeal, they find love for each other. As the nation capitulates to Nazi power, they determine to fight on, and are recruited into a secret resistance network.
The German Kommandant of the area seeks to rule a conquered people. He rewards collaboration, but is determined to destroy all those who still resist – the ‘terrorists’ who are threatening his command.
Through a terrible tragedy, Rosa falls into the Kommandant’s power, and is forced into becoming his mistress. Jonny, however, still fights on, and he is thirsty for revenge – against both the Kommandant and his former lover.
Will there be a day of destiny – a time of dissolution – when all three meet?

Product Description:

In May, 1940, Nazi Germany was master of continental Europe, the only European power still standing was Great Britain--and the all-conquering German armed forces stood poised to cross the Channel. Following the destruction of the RAF fighter forces, the sweeping of the Channel of mines, and the wearing down of the Royal Naval defenders, two German army groups were set to storm the beaches of southern England. Despite near-constant British fears from August to October, the invasion never took place after first being postponed to spring 1941, before finally being abandoned entirely.

Robert Forcyzk, author of Where the Iron Crosses Grow, looks beyond the traditional British account of Operation Sea Lion, complete with plucky Home Guards and courageous Spitfire pilots, at the real scale of German ambition, plans and capabilities. He examines, in depth, how Operation Sea Lion fitted in with German air-sea actions around the British Isles as he shows exactly what stopped Hitler from invading Britain.
