PADDY GRIFFITH'S WARGAMING OPERATION SEALION: The Game that Launched Academic Wargaming
Held at the British Army Staff College in 1974, this ground-breaking wargame was a serious piece of academic research to explore a contested area of military history. Paddy assembled a team of subject matter experts from Britain and Germany to run a wargame to explore what would have happened if the Germans had launched their planned invasion of Britain. To umpire and play in the game, he used combat veterans with senior command experience, including some who were involved in 1940 -- including Luftwaffe Gen. Adolf Galland.
This describes the game, including previously unpublished material such as briefings, analysis, guidance for umpires, and post-game reflections. 'The resulting analysis of the Sealion Wargame is the most authoritative assessment yet produced of the prospects for this titanic and consequential hypothetical struggle.' -- Peter Perla.
