Sealion: The Proposed German Invasion of England, September 1940 is a wargame simulating a hypothetical German invasion of England in late 1940 (circa September) and presumes the Germans had achieved air superiority over the Royal Air Force. This game incorporates an significant level of detail and, therefore both air and naval operations, as well as all facets of land operations (operational and strategic).
While it is assumed the British had already lost the eponymous Battle of Britain, the RAF is not completely out of the fight yet, and the Royal Navy still presents a credible threat to the Germans' amphibious landings and supply conduits across the English Channel. On the ground, the Germans have operational superiority, but the British Army can rely on their interior lines of communication and defensible terrain, including a crude network of hastily constructed fortifications built before the invasion.
