London: Rupert Hart-Davis, 1957. [Military History] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (23 x 15cm), pp.323; [1]. Illustrated with numerous black and white photographic plates and drawings within the text. Publisher's cloth in photographic dust-wrapper. A lightly used copy with some dustiness, a little discolouration to cloth, jacket spine moderately sunned, frayed at spine ends, price-clipped. Shows well. Fleming's wartime intelligence operations with the resistance networks meant he was well placed to write a book about Nazi plans for the conquest of England. 'Invasion 1940' was a subsequent bestseller and his breakthrough work as an author of historical and military books, having previously achieved literary renown as a travel writer. The book was later published under the title 'Operation Sea Lion'. Item #53920
