Invasion! Operation Sealion, 1940


This book is a worthwhile addition to your library if you're interested in Operation Sealion. It covers the tactics, strategies and orders of battle, for both sides, should the invasion have taken place. The first part of the book covers the historical background through to the start of September, and the latter part crosses over into alternate history territory: what if the invasion had taken place.

The best part of this book is the first part which contains a tremendous amount of detail, including many pages of the actual orders issued to individual units. Of course, some people who are looking for a fast moving read may find this level of detail unnecessary for them, but others will revel in this information.

In my opinion, the weaker part of the book, is the second, speculative part. There are some interesting ideas, but there are also quite a number of ideas that don't seem credible to me. Of course, any Sealion scenario is entirely speculative, so I'm willing to concede that it's possible that I'm wrong and the author is right - you'll have to read the book yourself and make your own mind up.

Over all, I'd say that if you're interested in Sealion then it's a book worth buying - but, I expect you'll probably want some other books on the subject in as well.

Product Description:

This terrifying alternative reality is actually based on historical facts.  The book follows the real course of events up to1 September, including the planning in Britain and Germany, and the aerial war. The fictional story then supposes that the Germans halted their advance in France along the Seine and the Aisne after the fall of Paris and that Marshal Petain conceded an armistice at that point. The Panzer divisions are thus able to rest and re-equip in northern France…

A brilliant blend of meticulous research and imagination, this book is bound to appeal to anyone with an interest in the causes and effects of historical events, and indeed to anyone interested in world war history itself.
