Ebook Description

“The Home Guards are an attacking force lying in wait for, and ready to destroy, and enemy who dares to set foot on out shores.” Formed by men not eligible for active service who were expected to resist a German invasion of England with any available resources, the Home Guard was the embodiment of plucky British resolve against the odds. That's the spirit evoked in this small, nostalgic book, based on the author's experiences and memory. It's full of sound advice on training, organization, discipline, firearms, the proper position to adopt for surviving a dive-bomb attack—and even how to set a trap for an unwary advancing German cyclist!
