Described as the Battle of Britain on the ground, this book examines in detail the organisation of the Home Guard and the operations of Ground Defence, in support of the RAF air effort. An original example of the first edition published in 1943, it is written in the spirit of cheerful bravery that typified the Home Guard operations of the war, particularly the static defences including Anti-Aircraft guns, searchlights, barrage balloons and the Royal Observer Corps.
