Would Germany have launched a land invasion of Britain?

The planned invasion of Britain by the Germans in WWII (Operation Sealion) has provided our forums with many months of  discussions in the past and they have never really died out… The dialogue has currently flared up once again on our Alternate Timeline forum, where many ponder on the great “what if’s” of history.

Most successful campaign of WWII

Our most popular forum is bustling with activity. A broad range of subjects lie ready to be devoured by WWII buffs. One of them, is the poll on the most successful campaign of this world wide conflict. Whether you agree that the German invasion of France in 1940 is currently considered to be the most successful or not, we invite you to express YOUR opinion. So get into your foxhole and be prepared to be overwhelmed by a bombardment of endless information.

In the ACG searchlight this week we will shed some light on our Modeling forum. And no, we don’t mean beautiful girls walking the catwalks, that’s on another site, but the “art” of building miniature airplanes, tanks, ships even battlefields and huge diorama’s…

I don’t believe I am wrong in stating that model building is an “art”. It needs a steady hand, an eye for detail, endurance and most of all…tons of patience. Traits that not everybody has the honor of possessing.
