Hitlers 1940 invasion speech

Postby Times Past » Sun Jun 06, 2010 1:53 pm

Iam writing an article about Operation Sealion and I recall that Hitler delivered a speech to the effect that he was about to invade Britain.

Does anyone know when Hitler delivered this speech and recisely what he said?

But there are the two Fuhrer Directives

No. 17 -1 August 1940
Translations of which can be found as Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 at:-

Return to “1900 onwards”
