This is a novel based upon what would likely happen were the European Union to become the United States of Europe.
Since the European Union was formed in 1957, the peoples of the nations of that organisation have witnessed a progressive erosion of their countries' sovereignty. What used to be within the legislative competence of national governments is now the sole prerogative of unelected, unaccountable, unknown and corrupt politicans and bureaucrats in Brussels.
Maenan: The Second Battle of Britain is a novel based upon a situation where all national sovereignty and all expressions and symbols of national identity have been suppressed by the dictatorship in Brussels. The story centres around a family which plays a leading role in the British uprising against the Brussels' dictatorship which, along with the United States of America, is engaged in crushing the rebellion and bringing the "awkward island" to heel.
The two main focal points in the story are Tregale Castle, the ancestral home of the Holmes family, and Maenan School in North Wales, one of the many establishments which take in children who have been evacuated from the cities so that they may find protection from the military aggression being perpetrated against Great Britain by the invading USE forces.
The story's central character, Alfred Holmes learns that he has a special mission to accomplish.
