Operation Sea Lion
Operation Sea Lion (German: Unternehmen Seelöwe) was Nazi Germany's plan to invade England during World War II, beginning in 1940. To have had any chance of success the operation would have required air supremacy over the English Channel. With the German defeat in the Battle of Britain, Sea Lion was postponed indefinitely on 17 September 1940 and never carried out.
