The whole concept of a German invasion of England resides in accepting that the Germans could cross the English Channel in the face of desperate British resistance. Unfortunately, Macksey doesn't really convince the reader that the Kriegsmarine could do this. Macksey is a former armor officer and the parts covering ground operations are the best, but the naval chapters are weak.

Macksey's blend of what actually happened and what might have been makes for a piece of writing comparable to. .The Daily Telegraph In June 1940, German troops massed across the Channel, poised for the invasion of Britain.

In this brilliant and compelling alternate history the Germans launch the invasion that, in reality, was never more than a plan.

Amongst many other books, Macksey wrote two volumes of alternate history, one, entitled Invasion, dealt with a successful invasion of England by Germany in 1940 and the other describing a NATO–Warsaw Pact clash in the late 1980s. The latter book, First Clash, was done under contract to the Canadian Forces and focuses on the Canadian role in. such a conflict.

England, July 1940, by Kenneth Macksey.

I just finished Invasion The German Invasion of England, July 1940, by Kenneth Macksey. A good book, in it the Hipper and Emden are the only two ships that are used against the RN that survive. The Koln and I think Nurnberg go down. There are five factors which are either essential or extremly important to an amphibious invasion to have any chance of success.

This is another fairly excellent "What If?" novel about what might have happened if Germany had gone ahead with their Operation Sealion and invaded England.

This story hypothesizes that Hitler was persuaded by his Generals to initiate an invasion of England, rather than to hem and haw until it was too late as happened in real life. As his armies and Luftwafe pull together enough forces to make the attempt, Churchill and the other British leaders work frantically to build up their defenses, calling on the United States for as much aid as they can supply. It's a race throughout the early summer as both sides build up as much as they can for the battle they know is coming.

Overall I very much enjoyed the book though admittedly it wasn't quite what I'd expected. I was looking for a book at the unit level, perhaps jumping around from character to character ad we dealt with the invasion and the reaction to it. Instead there was very little of that at all; the author here went with a more scholarly "this is what happened" approach that only occasionally cited a (fictitious) diary or testimony from a participant. This is fine and a bit different than most books of this nature, but it comes across perhaps "drier" than some might want.

But it's a FINE novel, a find addition to my collection. VERY recommended for any alternate history buff, but be aware it's a bit dry.

Typos like referring to Jodl as Jodi were distracting. The book presupposes knowledge of English towns and geological features. The lack of minesweepers in the British Navy was an obvious error.

A well-written hypothetical account on what if the German Whermacht had launched Operation Sealion in July 1940 right after the fall of France. In this version, the Germans land two infantry divisions near Dover and drop the 7th Airborne Division. In short, the British counterattack fails, the Germans land their armor and British resistance collapses after about two weeks. Macksey includes good military detail, but he tends to portray most British actions as half-hearted and inept. The sea battles go far too well for the Germans and the Royal Navy doesn't put in a good effort. The whole concept of a German invasion of England resides in accepting that the Germans could cross the English Channel in the face of desperate British resistance. Unfortunately, Macksey doesn't really convince the reader that the Kriegsmarine could do this. Macksey is a former armor officer and the parts covering ground operations are the best, but the naval chapters are weak. Logistic issues are glossed over. Interesting, but a bit far-fetched. Maps are excellent and will be appreciated by military historians.

I expected some action as in other alternative history books I have read. This is an academic presentation of how Hitler could have taken over England. I believe it is well researched but quite dry.

This is a good read for anyone who enjoys alternative history. It is short, just over 200 pages and therefore a little superficial. However, it is well written, believable and very readable. I have always considered the invasion of England to be a signal event that could have dramatically altered the History of the world. This book outlines just how that may have happened. The books has some good maps and detailed unit information which I enjoy. It is well worth reading.

Dyni
Good book about the invasion, lots of detail and analysis into the situation as it may have been. A good read
