What if?.... The German Invasion of England actually did happen in July 1940 after the British retreat from Dunkirk. Resistance, collaboration and a controversial portrayal of the 'English Nazis'. This copy of the film was given to John Tunstill by the director, Kevin Brownlow, who's research work into old films should be well known through his documentaries and books. Andrew Mollo, the co-director, used to help John when he was working at Tradition, a militaria shop in London's Piccadilly, with military advice and uniform details.
