This review has just been placed on for Seelowe Nord by SJ Smart. It is a very nice review for which I am extremely grateful.
5.0 out of 5 stars Operation Sea Lion lands in Yorkshire!, 5 July 2010
This is a very well written and fast paced alternative history novel set in 1940 covering very familiar ground, what if the Germans invade England in the summer of 1940 soon after Dunkirk and the fall of France. However, this writer has placed the scene not on Kent or the south coast where the story is usually told but in Yorkshire! The Germans storm ashore at Bridlington, Spurn Head, Filey and Scarborough!

Very original and written with a lot of action, some great characters and a lot of detail. The scene shifts from the North Sea where the Fleets fight it out with U Boats sniping away on the edges, from Churchill and Alan Brooke in Whitehall to Jodl and Kietel in the German HQ to a series of German and British characters fighting it out in the Yorkshire countryside or its beaches.

Would recommend to any fan of this genre or anyone who enjoys a good war story. It could have done with a map of this region but I cant really fault this book, its a brilliant example of military alternative history. Much better than a lot of others on the market at the moment.
