About this book
A book which challenges all our preconceptions about Britain playing the role of the plucky underdog in World War II, arguing that in fact, this country used its high technology, new weapon systems, military scientists, colossal factories, inventiveness and resources to win through. 'Brilliant and thought-provoking' "Sunday Telegraph"
The familiar image of the British in the Second World War is that of the plucky underdog taking on German might. This title shows the conflict in a new light, with Britain as a very wealthy country, formidable in arms, ruthless in pursuit of its interests and sitting at the heart of a global production system.
