It’s 1943 in and around the small town of Purbeckshire, James Arnold, an Auxiliary, part of the “British Resistance” was secretly training to be able to attack invading German Forces. It was thought that the Germans would attack Britain soon. Spies were known to be operating in the area and reporting back to their German Paymasters but were not actually known by name so James Arnold had to treat everyone with suspicion. The ultimate goal of the story is to disrupt the Germans as much as possible if they choose to attack Britain allowing as much damage to be done to them as possible whilst regular troops can be organised against them.
