CAN GERMANY
INVADE ENGLAND?

 

 
"Give me facts, feed me on facts.

Carlyle.

"The Navy means for you your existence as an Empire; it means for you the fact that you are free from invasion; it means for you your daily food and daily employment. The Navy is all in all and everything; therefore, though the cost is great, it is little compared with what it brings back to you."

Lord Selborne, First Lord of the Admiralty in the late Government.

" What is the real basis and justification of the craven fears which threaten to burden this country with a sort of conscript army, which threaten to turn this country into a sort of Germany, with its millions of soldiers, and which threaten to lose us even a sort of command of the sea, for we cannot serve two masters?"
