IT'S DECEMBER 1940 AND A NAZI INVASION FORCE HAS LANDED ON THE SOUTH COAST OF ENGLAND
For several weeks the invaders have been building up their forces on the coast, while the mighty German Luftwaffe have pounded the RAF into submission. As the invasion force prepares to strike north and capture London, King Edward VIII refuses the resignation of British Prime Minister Lord Halifax, triggering a constitutional crisis.
Parliament is recalled, and with all the members of both houses meeting in Westminster, a small group of backbench MPs and their families - designated survivors - are taken to a secure location south of the river Thames. They are completely unaware of the imminent events that will thrust them into the limelight, and put the fate of the country in their hands.
You are one of those designated survivors. Can you save the British people from Hitler and his Third Reich, or will the war be over by Christmas?
FOR NEARLY FOUR YEARS BRITAIN HAS BEEN UNDER GERMAN OCCUPATION
Swastikas fly from public buildings and so far, any attempt at liberation has been impossible. But with Hitler distracted on the Eastern Front, the time has come for action. Several hundred thousand American and Empire forces have gathered on the coast of Ireland, ready to make their way across the Irish sea and begin the liberation of the United Kingdom.
An ambitious plan has been drawn up to try and break the back of the occupying forces by liberating London in a single day. At the heart of the plan is the British Resistance, who are tasked with clearing a path to London for the liberating forces.
You are one of those Resistance leaders. Can your decisions and tactics shape whether this bold plan ends in victory, or will Britain remain a colony of the new German Empire through to the 21st Century?
