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.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In the whole course of the war,' conceded Britain's chief press censor, `there was no story which gave me so much trouble as that of the attempted German invasion, flaming oil on the water and 30,000 burned Germans.' Sparked by the Directorate of Military Intelligence and MI6, rumours that Britain had set fire to the English Channel to defeat a German invasion in 1940 quickly spread around the world. Highly popular in America, the incendiary `Big Lie' became Britain's first significant propaganda victory of the Second World War.Yet the unlikely deception was founded in fact. Dead German soldiers were washed ashore on British beaches, a secret Petroleum Warfare Department tested lethal flame barrages on land and sea, and fire ships were hastily dispatched to enemy ports as part of Operation Lucid. British intelligence agencies even managed to plant the burning sea story on their opposite numbers in Nazi Germany.Burn the Sea is the definitive account of the origin, circulation and astonishing longevity of the myth of the `invasion that failed' in 1940, as well as its remarkable revival in 1992.
