History of the Channel Tunnel : The Political, Economic and Engineering History of an Heroic Railway
About this item
The Channel Tunnel, has been one of histories most protracted and at times acrimonious, construction projects.From the paranoia of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when there was a fear that foreign hordes would rush through the tunnel and invade Britain, to the lethargic attempts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, its a miracle, that this great feat of Engineering, was ever constructed at all.Nicholas Faith, has delved into the archives and researched the fascinating truth about this project, that took so long to authorise and construct.The author has found material in the archives, both in Britain and abroad, that has not been previously published or seen, outside a closed group of people.
