Crabwell Publications, River, Dover, 1982. UK first edition, hard bound in dj, 7 1/2 x 10, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped), , 174 pages, many illus., maps, glossary, index.------------------------------This book is an authentic account illustrated with over one hundred pictures of the defence of the Kent coast, written by a Battery Commander of Coast Artillery. The majority of the contents are restricted to those frightening years 1939-45. when the enemy was on our doorstep and we were only half ready and less than half armed!The author begins his story during those halcyon days before the War when, as a member of the Royal Artillery Territorial Army, he practised each Sunday on the 9.2 inch guns at Citadel Battery, Dover. It never occurred to him at the time that he would shortly be standing by those same guns with H.E. shells on the hoists instead of the usual sand filled ones.For most of the War the author was in charge of various batteries around the harbour and on the white cliffs above. He recalls graphically the tragedy of the allied soldiers who were snatched from the beaches of Dunkirk and brought back home on a flotilla of small boats.He tells of his concern regarding the shortage of weapons and ammunition at his batteries, and how he talked a ship's captain into going back to the French beaches to collect some of the abandoned equipment.There is a chapter on the German batteries built along the cliffs between Blanc Nez and Gris Nez with the express purpose of bombarding the Channel Ports. When these guns were operational, Dover became known in the world press as "Shellfire Corner" arid by continuous shelling and bombing, the old port and town was fast disappearing.We read that this shelling was gradually countered by our long range static and railway guns, and it became obvious that these weapons had effectively closed the Strait to enemy ships and any attempt to run the blockade would have been extremely costly.This account of our reply to the German threat must continue to be a reminder to any would be aggressor who dared consider entering the "Gateway of England" by force.
