Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I stumbled upon author Johnsons website looking for the OOB for the UK landforces in september 1940.
Jonhson wrote this book from his ideas for a CPX to be held about an fictional invasion on the eastern shores of ther UK instead of in the ( predictable ) south.
His book is well written, accept for some annoying errors, and will keep you reading untill the end.
As he stated in his foreword, this book deals with an operation the Germans might have carried out against England wheather or not this might have been possible.

Basically the Germans carry out a feint attack in the south leading the Royal NAVY and RAF away from their real target in the east, the shores of Scarborough, Filey and Cayton.
From there the German forces would drive into the industrial heart of the UK forcing the UK to surrender.

The book gives a very detailed look at the generals level but also detailed stories about the fighting taking place.
I recommend it.
And, also very important a lot of the money is going to British Army charity.

Units involved in major fighting:

Germany
7th paradivision and 1st mountaindivision.
7th and 17th infantrydivision landed at Filey beach.
35th infantrydivision landed at Bridlington.
8th panzer and SS Totenkopf attacking Cawood pocket.

UK
1st and 2nd infantrydivision
37th infantrybrigade.
44th infantrybrigade.
59th infantrybrigade.
1st armoured division.
1st and 2nd Canadian infantrydivisions
Guards armored division with all guards units.
