Sample text

Hitler’s enunciation of his willingness to negotiate with the British was made clear in a speech on 19 July. When there was no positive response from the British, the way was clear for the planning of Operation Sea Lion—the proposed invasion of Britain by German amphibious forces. However, any successful landing in Britain would require effective German air superiority. While the British Expeditionary Force that hadbeen sent to France was representative ofBritain’s generally small army it was the RAFand to a lesser extent the Royal Navy that hadreceived the lion’s share of defense spending inthe run-up to the outbreak of war.

The German forces now demonstrated that they possessed a host of attributes. On 13 May the Germans successfully crossed the Meuse at Dinant, courtesy of a weir left intact by the French. Further south, at the town of Sedan, German infantry and combat engineers crossed the river at astonishing speed under cover of a concentrated air and artillery barrage. German infantry established a foothold on the western bank and within hours pontoon bridges were constructed across the river and Panzers began to cross.

German infantry established a foothold on the western bank and within hours pontoon bridges were constructed across the river and Panzers began to cross. The all-arms combination functioned perfectly, with all the participating units knowing the aim of their mission and all working in concert to achieve it. By the morning of 16 May over 2,000 German tanks and in excess of 150,000 German troops had crossed the River Meuse along a 50-mile (80km) stretch. This breach of the Allied defensive line effectively sealed the fate of the Allied armies in northwest France and the Low Countries, and paved the way for the decisive, strategic success of the German assault.
