In 1974 Paddy Griffith ran a game about operation Sealion at at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and the Staff College. With 6 generals and many military experts, including many with combat experience from WWII, it was a serious attempt to explore a contested area of military history.

After a number of years research, I have just uploaded a video about the game.

It may amuse you for 30 mins over coffee one day, or it may not!

In an episode of "The Buildings That Fought Hitler" this simulation was mentioned. I think it was historian James Holland who said that the German OOB it assumed was crazy to start with…

That was very interesting, thanks for sharing.

I always liked Paddy Griffith, I didn't always agree with him but his writing always made me think.
