  Why War? Keywords: World War II
Moscow was again spared, and at the end of 1942 the Soviets succeeded in smashing the Axis front lines in the south and surrounding the German 6th Army at Stalingrad; in February 1943 the paltry remnant of the 300,000 man army surrendered.
In the spring Germany was able restore the front line and make a successful riposte at Kharkov, but their offensive at the massive Battle of Kursk (July 1943) was so unsuccessful that the Soviets were able to counterattack and regain the ground previously lost.
They established a series of tough defensive lines in mountainous country that was ideally suited to defense, and progress by the Allies was slow.

 Taunton Stop Line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The stop line was designed "to stop an enemy's advance from the west and in particular a rapid advance supported by armoured fighting vehicles (up to the size of a German medium tank) which may have broken through the forward defences."
The innermost and longest was the GHQ Line.
To reinforce the line and deny access to the major east-west routes that passed through the line, in 1941 12 "Defensive Islands" were added to the line.

Over 50 defensive lines were constructed around England, the GHQ Line being the longest and most important, designed to protect London and the industrial heart of England.
The GHQ Line ran from the northern end of the Taunton Stop Line near Highbridge in Somerset, along the River Brue and the Kennet and Avon Canal to Reading, around the south of London south of Guildford and Aldershot, to Canvey Island and Great Chesterford in Essex, before heading north to end in Yorkshire.

GHQ might be proof of just that, because it's goddam beautiful.
GHQ is the trio of Bassett, Pete Nolan (Magik Markers, Spectre Folk, etc.), and Steve Gunn (don't know Steve at all), and their mode of exploration is the multiple acoustic guitar drone, taking the standard cues from Indian ragas and Appalachain folk.
It's rare a single guitar line is able to hold your interest for a song that long, but this guitarist is so full of energy and the guitarline evolves so much over the timespan that it's impossible to turn away.

Using the methodology employed in the original English version, a 28-item version of the GHQ was constructed based on the general Spanish population.
In the first phase, the study population is classified (usually by means of a survey) in terms of the probability of the presence or absence of psychiatric morbidity.
At present, the GHQ is the most widely used instrument for detecting non-psychotic psychiatric "cases", whether in the general population or among patients attending a given general practitioner's practice.

 Details, Somerset HER
By August 1940 the line was considered strategically obsolete and plans switched to defending the beaches and a network of strongpoints based around towns and road crossings.
The GHQ line was totally abandoned early in 1941 but several places along it were designated strong points and their all-round defences improved.
A general reconnaissance of the line was undertaken on 14-15 June 1940 which formed the basis of instructions issued on the 18th June to Southern Command to build the line between Bristol and London.

Upon receiving Macarthur’s letter, the Labour Division at GHQ held meetings with management and labour union representatives from various industrial sectors, pressed for complicity in the Red Purge, emphasized that ‘red’ did not mean all members of the Communist Party, urged a ‘prudent response’, and from first to last followed a course of political opportunism.
The GHQ Labour Division’s instructed labour and management representatives to (1) bring the perspective of ‘corporate defence’ to the fore, and (2) define ‘destructive elements’ as communists and communist sympathizers who had been ‘active trouble-makers’.
Two years earlier, GHQ had restricted free debate and criticism in the print media by declaring that newspaper editorial rights be ‘restricted to administrative managers and editorial managers commissioned by them’.

In C. Alexander's work titled "The G.H.Q. line: Pillbox defence line of 1990", held at the Surrey History Centre in Woking, he tells us that the actual siting of the pillboxes was the task of Officers from the Royal Artillery and seemed to have been haphazardly done.
Stop lines and nodal points set behind coastal regions and extending up to fifty miles inland; and the G.H.Q anti-tank defence line, a fixed line of continuous anti-tank traps and obstacles supported by pillboxes.
