 Plot summary
Lammas Night tells the story of a group of English witches who act to save their country from Nazi attack during World War II. Woven within the story of their efforts are the visions and fragmented memories of one male witch, who gradually comes to realize his role in an ancient cycle of royal death, reincarnation, and sacrifice.
The events of the novel reflect an actual attempt of pagans and wiccans in Great Britain to magically aid the British war effort and forestall German invasion during World War II, as recounted in wartime letters of occultist Dion Fortune.
