In 1939 it was thought that, as a diversionary tactic, Germany
might launch an attack on the coast-line of Cheshire from southern
Ireland. To back this up, it was expected that there might be
multiple parachute landings across the county. As plans to repel
any assault were developed, invasion committees were set up and a
covert army was formed made up of local shipyard workers, school
teachers and postmen. Underground hides were built and training was
given in the servicing and firing of weapons including hand
grenades. Author Ron Freethy has talked to a great many of those
who took part in covert operations and uses their first-hand
accounts to tell the story.
