Overview

Pillboxes - Images of an Unfought Battle by Ian J. Sanders

In 1940 a network of defences was hastily built all over the British Isles to prevent an anticipated German invasion. Sited at road junctions, canals and other strategic points these constructions were called "pillboxes".

Despite the passage of time many of these remain as permanent monuments and a silent tribute to the courage and tenacity of the British people in the dark days of 1940.

This photo book records some of what remains today.

A story of the other side of the Battle of Britain that would have been fought if 'The Few' had failed. The photos of the crumbling remains show an atmospheric side of the english landscape as important as Stonehenge. This book is a moving record of what might have been....
