NotesRepublished in David Low, Europe at War, (Penguin Books, 1941). Printed on opposite page: "Hitler had advertised a "secret weapon". It materialised as the magnetic mine, dropped indiscriminately in large numbers by parachute from seaplanes. He hoped to discourage neutral shipping from trade with Britain and thereby to further his continental blockade. Britain soon invented a means to counter it." p.24.
