What is Project Seelöwe?

I have head a fascination for Operation Sealion (Unternehmen Seelöwe) for many years, so long in fact, that I cannot recall what originally sparked it.  But given that plans were actually made for the invasion of Britain in 1940 it creates a fabulous opportunity to explore some alternative history.

This blog is intended to capture the development of this particular wargaming project.

Along with my other project blogs - Project MarlboroughProject Mutiny and Project Montrose - this is something of an experiment. At its heart it's somewhere for me to report progress, however slow, on the project but also to capture material I am gathering for scenarios and actually gaming the period. It's not, I hasten to add, a substitute for posts on The Wargame Shed but rather to complement them. I hope that provide something of use to others interested in this interesting "what if?".
