Great stuff Fw-190. So basically the BBC radio what if talked about the invasion of Britian by Germany. I seemed to gather that they concluded that if the RAF lost the battle of Britain, then operation sealion will have occured. A similiar discussion has taken place elsewhere but maybe we can start a new discussion about Operation Sealion and would it ever have taken place even if the RAF lost?

A superb "what if" universe based on almost exactly that premise (coup by Lord Halifax leading to a Vichy-style regime in the UK) can be found here (http://p076.ezboard.com/fhistorypoliticsandcurrentaffairs68862frm25.showMe ssage?topicID=183.topic). Highly recommended (start with The Big One and then read through the rest in any particular order you like), but there is a heck of a lot of it. The thing is Stuart used to targeteer nuclear weapons for a living, and now analyses naval systems for Forecast International so his work has a believability to it that is otherwise almost universally lacking in such alt-hist works.
