Operation sea lion

Back in WW II, not long after the Germans overran France and the
rest of Western Europe they looked across the English Channel and
set their sights on one last holdout, England. The plan was simple,
bomb the country into submission then launch a seaborn invasion.
That plan was called 'Operation Sea Lion.' The thing is they never
launched that invasion and the following clip shows why.

Out at D-Day they flip-flop everyone's roles during one of the mini
events. Instead of the allies attacking they let them defend and
it's the Germans who get tasked with taking the beach. Of course
after all the pounding the Allies have taken over all the years who
wouldn't want to pass up a chance for some payback and so lets
face it, it takes a lot of guts to face a crowd like that so I tip
my hat to those Germans who had the guts to even try. Maybe
2013 is the year they'll come up with more players and a better
plan and pull off a win. That'd sure send a message and also be
something to see.

Here's a music video featuring some footage of last year's 'Operation
Sea Lion.'
