It's been a state secret for more than 70 years: the official line in the UK has always been that it never happened - but this book challenges the assertion that no German force set foot on British soil during World War Two (the Channel Islands excepted), on active military service. Adrian Searle reveals the remarkable story of a mid-war seaborne enemy raid on an Isle of Wight radar station. He describes the purpose and scope of the attack, the composition of the raiding German force and how it was immediately, and understandably, 'hushed-up' by Winston Churchill's wartime administration, in order to safeguard public morale.

I found this book greatly disappointing. Better to read the critique of the book by Peter Hibbs at the following http://www.pillbox.org.uk/blog/245381/
