Summary September 1940. Britain is rife with rumors of dead Nazis washed up on the beaches of the southeast coast—their bodies charred as though burnt alive. This book explores the truth behind these rumors and the intriguing story of Operation Lucid—the British plan to create a network of flame barrages to incinerate any Nazi invasion flotilla. Soon stories of flame warfare spread across Europe and to America, where journalists report that "10,000 Germans lost their lives" in the failed invasion attempt of Britain. The notion of Britain setting the seas surrounding France and the coast aflame is everywhere. This book reveals the propaganda and the reality of the plans to protect Britain from invasion.
