Lynn Henty has heard, February 9, 2007, that Operation Sea Lion was just Hitler's strategic bluff
Did Hitler really plan to invade England?
Irving: "Hitler's War"
(Millennium Edition, 2002)
I READ an opinion that Hitler's positioning of the canal barges in the French Channel ports was just a bluff, and that he never really intended to invade England, do you have an opinion on this?
A point of interest is that in the plans for Operation SEALION, a large number of army horses for transport vehicles were to be shipped to England, the Germans still being surprisingly dependant on horses for transport
David Irving replies:
YES, if you read my books "Hitler's War" (Millennium Edition, 2002) my Churchill biography, "Churchill's War", vol. i: "Struggle for Power", will find the evidence that supports this view. Sealion was a strategic deception for the Eastern front campaign.
Horses: don't need gasoline, and can be eaten in emergency. Yuk.
