Sealion & Barbarossa
Operation Sea Lion

Invasion, 1940: Did the Battle of Britain Alone Stop Hitler?
The conventional view of the events of 1940, as the British Royal Air Force's (RAF) victory in the Battle of Britain, is what stopped the Germans from attempting Operation Sealion, the invasion of Britain. While the valour of RAF is beyond dispute, this book questions the assumption that the reason that Sealion didn't go ahead was solely for this reason. I think that this is a reasonable question to ask: most people who have considered the problems of Operation Sealion, have questioned whether the invasion could have succeeded even with German air superiority.
I won't tell you what conclusion the author comes to, even though the title of the book probably gives you a bit more than a hint... but nevertheless, this is a book worth reading and adding to your collection.
