In retrospect

It was really fun to plan and execute a 1941 SeaLion. Is it the best idea ever? Probably not.
But the faints, pretend-Barbarossa and then rapid invasion was highly entertaining.

What I did wrong - garrison of the UK. I really needed a strong corps in each harbor, Ireland included.
And I should have taken Scapa Flow, no matter the cost.

What went right? I mostly managed my German manpower well. This is crucial to be successful.

As for SillyFlower, well it's hard to tell from the other side of the hill, but I do think he gave up
a bit early. But mostly - and perhaps I am wrong here - he had so so many air units, did he build too many?
Perhaps more tanks would have served him better?

I don't have the VP numbers, but the Axis were way ahead. The Allies would need to conquer Germany and Italy before the deadline.

Gotta wonder how far the Soviets could have pushed into Germany by Aug1945 had not the Anglo-American cabal not made a cowardly good for business separate peace.

I think the UK/USA needed to wait for the Russians to grind down more of the Germans. Perhaps sillyflower felt that doing that was impossible due to the strength of the Axis in time to win as you get a feel for it.

I see a lot of Air and in previous versions they did far more damage. If half of those were armor(or more) in the west I would be much happier. Though the game was pretty long and good. VPs do allow for this longer game if you choose it...

The reason for stopping (as posted on my AAR) was the inability to mount another D-Day successfully in '44. Looking now at the defences in France before I went for Holland, I think that any invasion there would have been swamped even more quickly because just taking a couple of 2 level ports is a recipe for disaster. Having large armies from both Yugo and Spain made a huge difference because there were none of the usual gaps anywhere. The Russians couldn't do it all on their own, especially as Germans could have shifted east again. The game would have just stalemated where things were at that point.

Sveint played the better game, and deserved his win.

Thank you. It's hard to know if anyone reads them.
