Operation Sealion, Hitler’s Invasion Plan For Britain

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The planned invasion of the British Isles by Germany in 1940 has been much argued over the years but this book makes a convincing set of arguments based on careful research. Hitler certainly blinked first but what is less certain is whether he ever seriously expected to have to launch an invasion against a hostile British coastline – Strongly Recommended
