I regularly search the Internet for a new information or publications related to AR and the '12', and have just come across an academic paper in the 'International Journal of Maritime History' by a Michael Bender.

It is headlined as

Arthur Ransome’s ‘Swallows and Amazons’ series: Harmless holiday adventures, or detailed preparations for the next war?

and according to the abstract AR " drawing a blueprint for rural guerrilla warfare after a successful invasion."

An interesting theory, is it one worthy of serious consideration?

Unfortunately, the paper is only available through a paywall. Anyone a subscriber to that journal?
