The British Army, having left much of their heavy equipment on the beaches at Dunkirk, and badly disorganized from the mauling taken in France, would seem to be no match for the vaunted Wehrmacht. the ever-dependable Luftwaffe, though depleted by the savage air battles taking place over Southern England, has at last won air superiority over the island. With the Royal Air Force crippled, Hitler's final prerequisite for invasion has been met, and the final attack order is given.
Britain Stands Alone allows players to fight one of the most intriguing "what-ifs" of the Second World War. The game explores the hypothetical possibilities of Operation Sea Lion, assuming that the Luftwaffe had succeeded in winning air superiority, and then gone on to inflict serious losses upon the Royal Navy. Given these circumstances, could the Third Reich have won WWII in the fall of 1940? Play Britain Stands Alone and see for yourself.
