comment How strong a land force did Germany need for a conquest of the British Isles in the summer of 1940?
@Schwern, I agree. The 540 st supplied to the pockets would hardly be enough for Stalingrad let alone Sealion.

It should be noted that the Stalingrad statistics may be a bit misleading. Prior to Stalingrad, two separate groups of German soldiers were surrounded in the Demyansk and Kholm Pockets, in a situation similar to the Stalingrad one, albeit on a much smaller scale. Interestingly, these two pockets were supplied by air from February to May, recieving an average of 540ish tonnes of supplies per day. Indeed, this effort ended up destroying the German transport fleet, dooming the later effort at Stalingrad. Thus, supplying Sea lion from the air might not have been so far fetched.

comment Why did France just give up without a major fight in WW2?
I don't see why there are down-votes, though perhaps not a politically correct, it is a valid question.
