commited.They would have to focus only on bombing airfields,radar stations
and plane factories and not to bomb civilian targets as they did.In reality by bombing London and other cities they permitted RAF to survive.If RAF would have been defeated the Royal Navy ships on the Channel would have been an easy target for Luftwafe.After that it would probably followed a massive airborn assault with Fallshirmjagers occuping strategic points near
beachheads.And few shock Waffen SS and Panzer divisions landing in first
wave.But it wouldn't be an easy task to deal with the British Army.Probably it would followed a few desperate battles and after these a German triumph
or a bath into sea.

Just thought I'd give my 'vision'.
I think that Seelöwe would have been a very risky operation. Given the intelligence of that era, nobody really knew the Russian strength. They only knew that they really had big army. Taking that in consideration, I think it would be very risky to 'leave your back unprotected'. I would have feared a Russian invasion if I were a 'big shot' back then.
