Publisher's Summary

In May 1940, Nazi Germany was master of continental Europe. The only European power still standing was Great Britain - and the all-conquering German armed forces stood poised to cross the Channel. Following the destruction of the RAF fighter forces, the sweeping of the Channel of mines, and the wearing down of the Royal Naval defenders, two German army groups were set to storm the beaches of southern England. Despite near-constant British fears from August to October, the invasion never took place after first being postponed to spring 1941 before finally being abandoned entirely.

Robert Forczyk, author of Where the Iron Crosses Grow, looks beyond the traditional British account of Operation Sea Lion, complete with plucky Home Guards and courageous Spitfire pilots, at the real scale of German ambition, plans, and capabilities. He examines, in depth, how Operation Sea Lion fitted in with German air-sea actions around the British Isles as he shows exactly what stopped Hitler from invading Britain.

    "One of the best histories out."

    This is a well researched, thought provoking look at the possible German invasion of Britain. Loved it.

    "I give it a 3."

    Book provided information I didn't know. In my opinion, too much of the book deals with subjects that have nothing to do with Sealion. Narrator is obviously fluent in German, but I think it detracts from his reading of the book.

    "ooops"

    over exaggerated and incorrect pronunciations spoilt what is essentially a good book. very poor performance by the narrator. England and America really do speak different languages.

    Story
    "Typical American garbage"

    The essential facts of the Battle of Britain are this. If GreatBritain had not won the air battle, which deterred the invasion, the Germans would have invaded and concluded the subjugation of the whole of Europe. As a consequence they would have had resources and complete freedom to develope the atomic bomb, jet aircraft, radar etc long before America woke up!! In view of the determination of the Third Reich on World conquest. America would have had no alternative than but to accept occupation, after the first atomic bomb had fallen on New York. As for Russia, General Winter would have mattered little making Russia a mere training ground for the Wehrmacht. So think again before you employ your ridiculous statistics on the consequences of the Battle of Britain. We may be a 'little' country but 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few'
