Product Description

Summer 1940 Britain stands alone, its army smashed by the Germans in France, and the survivors barely rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk. In London, Winston Churchill remains defiant, trying desperately to rally the nation to resist the Nazi invasion. But not everyone in his cabinet share his resolve. Some believe there is no option but to seek a deal with Hitler.
Twenty miles across the English Channel, the Nazi armies stand ready, preparing to invade. There are signs that Britain is weakening. The Royal Air Force has almost disappeared; there are reports of mutinies in the Royal Navy, peace marches, hints of disloyalty involving the Duke of Windsor. Britain is close to collapse.
Then the Nazis receive is a message from London. An unknown group makes contact, seeking talks.
Who are these 'Realists'? Is there even a traitor inside the Cabinet?
Who has sent an An Invitation to Hitler?

About the Author:

Bernard Neeson lives in Dublin, Ireland. An Invitation to Hitler was inspired by a throwaway statement in Winston Churchill's History of the Second World War.
As Neeson researched the story, reading the histories, biographies and cabinet papers from the period, it became clear that there might be more to Churchill's words than meets the eye. What began as a short story began to gather legs as he discovered many half-hidden facts and even more innuendo.
Visiting the sites and sailing the waters helped add context, and even more so, atmosphere.
Neeson remains fascinated by the period and its intrigues. With the final British files on the Second World War not due for release until 2017, he is convinced that there is more to be told.
