Description

One of the most remarkable and persistent legends of World War Two, the story of German forces landing on the coast of Suffolk in September 1940 has inspired numerous works of fiction. But the conviction that the invasion plan, code-named 'Operation Sea lion,' was more than just a rumour has never been fully investigated, until now. Using recently declassified documents, information from local and national newspapers and magazines, and eyewitness accounts, Haining's book is lucid and gripping. It reveals East Anglia's historic vulnerability to invasion, the region's logistical importance as a testing ground for weapons of mass destruction, the true identity of 'the burnt drowned corpses,' and the bizarre defensive weaponry of The Wizard War.' 'Where The Eagle Landed' provides the solution to an enduring mystery and sheds light on a fraught period of Britain's wartime history.
