After the fall of France in 1940, an invasion of Britain was a real possibility. The more obvious route was across the Channel but an attack mounted from Norway might have quickly gained Germany a foothold in Scotland and, with control of Scapa Flow, dealt a huge blow to the Royal Navy. This history explains the nature and strategy of the defence that was planned to guard against this and also describes what was actually built and what survives today.
