Men of the British Expeditionary Force, the French, Belgian and even Dutch armies were evacuated to Britain, and now the threat of a German invasion lay at this island’s doorstep. The German plan was to invade Britain using similar Blitz tactics, by dropping airborne troops behind England’s coastal defences thereby taking them out to allow landing craft to disembark their army on the beaches.
