  A Photographic Guide to the
The Taunton Stop Line

by Bob Osborn

It was early June 1940 and Nazi Germany had stormed across Europe. There were no more British allies on the continent - Poland, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and France had all fallen under the relentless war machine that was the German Blitzkrieg. Only Britain remained, alone and awaiting the Nazi onslaught with the rag-tag remains of its defeated army. Of course Hitler would invade Britain and finish his conquest of Europe. Why on earth wouldn't he? But how was Britain to defend herself? The answer - a system of interlocking defences of pillboxes, gun emplacements, road blocks and suchlike that ran across the country to form a defensive barrier to the invading force.

Containing over 1,500 full colour photographs and over 120 maps and illustrations, this enlightening book contains a wealth of information in an authoritative text to create a complete interpretive photographic record of all the surviving Second World War defences of the Taunton Stop Line and the twelve associated anti-tank islands.
