Operation Sea Lion: The Alternate Timeline

Our official "Historian" is Patrick Gribble.  The artist is Arran Slee-Smith.  We thought it would be fun to attempt to explain what lead up to the 1944 Operation Sea Lion.  Why?  Cause it's fun!

Wow Great Job! This is probably the most concise recap I have seen on how Germany had a chance to win the war. They would have had to roll a lot of 6's to get there though!

Don't ignore the part about policy changes with conqueored populations. All it took to win was a "Kinder, Gentler, NAZI"

This makes no sense...
Goering might have been a lunatic drug addict, but he was only one nut in a big bag of crazy. The assertion that his death would lead Hitler to act in a more inclusive way towards conquered peoples in the east is absurd, and it's also more than a little insulting. Goering could be gone, but Himmler and plenty of other monsters would still be around in the German high command. And Hitler's own early writing and constant political rhetoric concerning "space" and his hatred for "inferior" races like the Polish, Slavs, Jews, etc. well documented. How does a dead Goering in 1938 change any of that? Hitler was never a stable individual, and while Goering was a sycophant and gained considering influence by stroking Hitler's over-sized ego, he was not the only Nazi official more concerned with dogma and ideology than national and operational strategy.

@gothmog: It makes sense because it ties the campaign together -- this is not a simulation, but ONE what if of many.

Write us one that does make sense to you or ignore this.
