An account of two of the most turbulent and revealing periods in British history, when the citizens of the 'island nation' faced the very real threat of invasion by two uncompromising military leaders and their awesome armies camped on the French coast. We Shall Fight on the Beaches focuses on the interval between the beginning of war against Napoleon in May 1803 and his withdrawal from Boulogne two and a half years later; and the months after the Allied evacuation from Dunkirk up to September 1940.

Identifying striking parallels and key differences in these defining periods, the book outlines strategic and political contexts and examines the climate of fear, suspicion and hostility that fermented at all levels of British society as the specter of invasion loomed; whether in 1805 as Napoleon's Grande Armee massed across the channel, or in 1940, as German preparations for Hitler's Operation Sealion began in earnest.
