Longmate, Norman

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1925-2016) UK author whose works include detective novels but who concentrated on military history, the point of view from which he approaches the Hitler Wins scenario of If Britain Had Fallen (1972), based on the 1972 BBC Television series speculating on the fall of Britain in 1940, after a Nazi Invasion. Longmate's text is remorselessly focused. [JC]
