OPERATION SEALION The Invasion of England 1940


Was the projected invasion of Southern England by German forces in 1940 a real threat and, if launched, would it have been successful? Historians continue to debate this subject to this day. Notwithstanding, this work provides a valuable reference work for all with an interest in the evolution of amphibious warfare. Interestingly this hardback 255 page work outlines the pioneering techniques developed by the Germans to carry their Armed Forces, and goes into great detail in describing the vessels that were designed, developed and prepared for Sealion. Whist some were converted cargo vessels and steamers the Germans also built specialised landing craft and adapted barges and pontoon boats as well as tugs and other ancillary ships for the operation.
