Might Operation Sea Lion - Hitler's plan to invade the island of Great Britain - have changed the course of WW2? Forczyk answers yes! In the course of a very in-depth analysis, the author considers the practical capabilities of the forces on both sides, across all types of military effort (land, sea, air, intelligence, industry and food, commerce). He concludes that German arms could probably not have succeeded in complete conquest of the British Isles; personality clashes (Goring and Raeder, for instance) and inter-service rivalries may have hindered the plans too deeply. However, the invasion held a strong chance of success in that a long-term German beachhead and a war of attrition on English soil, given strategic failings and mistakes by Churchill on the other hand, could easily have driven the British to a negotiated peace, which was Hitler's initial goal for the invasion.
Bottom line - very detailed, and a fascinating new look at the basic narrative.
