Operation Sea Lion


Peter Fleming, older brother of 007 author, Ian Fleming, was an adventurer and correspondant for The Times and The Spectator, as well as being the author of over a dozen books. In this book, Fleming briefly touches on the Battle of Britain, but mainly concentrates on what might have happened had the German's proceded with their planned invasion.

Unlike many other books on the subject, Fleming doesn't gloss over the inadequacies of the German plans, and the problems that Sealion would have faced. In this way, believe that the book is a lot more realistic than many others. Fleming also takes time to review the British national mood at the time (including some contemporary cartoon illustrations), as well as the anti-invasion preparations.

This book is definitely worth reading. And, for anybody who still thinks that Sealion would have led to a Nazi victory in World War II, you must read this book.

Product Description:

On 16 July 1940, Hitler issued Directive No. 16, setting in motion Operation Sea Lion: his plan to invade England. The success of Operation Sea Lion hinged entirely on the destruction of the RAF and the Royal Navy, but even as Hitler's plans swung into action and England, barely recovered from Dunkirk, rallied her defences, the Battle of Britain began and in just a few months Germany had lost all hope of dominating England's skies and with it, the key to the invasion. On 17 September, 1940, Hitler postponed Operation Sea Lion indefinitely and the entire episode faded from memory. It would be another 17 years before Peter Fleming rescued the story from military archives and, together with the recollections of those involved, pieced together the dramatic preparations for what could have been one of the most significant and potentially world-changing battles in history.
