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?

Not aware of a patrticular speech stating the intent to invade Britain.
But there are the two Fuhrer Directives
No. 16 - 16 July 1940
No. 17 -1 August 1940
Translations of which can be found as Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 at:-
