Descrizione del libro

9 giugno 2010
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Operation Ikarus (Unternehmen Ikarus or Fall Ikarus in German) was a World War II German plan to invade Iceland, which had been occupied by British forces during Operation Fork in 1940. The German plan was never realized. The purpose of the British move was to prevent the German invasion of the island. In fact, German dictator Adolf Hitler was not planning to invade at the time. So, instead of discouraging the Germans, the British occupation only encouraged them. The German plan was not realized due to the delay of Operation Sealion (Unternehmen Seelöwe) and, even though an invasion of Iceland was considered possible, defense and resupply was not.

1.0 su 5 stelle Operation Ikarus -- a Ripoff 17 marzo 2010

This is a total ripoff!

As a history buff with special interest in the events of World War II in the North Atlantic, I had the misfortune of coming across the compendium called Operation Ikarus: Nazi Germany, Iceland, United Kingdom, Operation Sealion.
I assumed (incorrectly) that this high-priced ($67) compendium (this can hardly be called a book) would give some interesting new insights into the German plans to invade and occupy Iceland in 1940.
My first surprise was when the package arrived. It was very slim -- only 149 pages. Worse, I saw immediately that it was simply a collection of short irrelevant Wikipedia articles about WW2 the UK, Nazi Germany and Iceland. Each of these articles could have been mistaken for a part of a high school textbook or a tourist brochure. Only one page (p 137) is devoted to Iceland's role in WW2. Four pages (p 128 - 131) discuss the planned Nazi invasion of the UK (Operation Sealion). The rest is totally irrelevant. For example, what is the relevance of British music and the Beatles (p 115)to Operation Ikarus? Or the meltdown of the Icelandic economy in 2008-2009 (p 78).
In addition, much of the text is barely readable because the font is so small. In fact, the references on page 146-149 require a magnifying glass for most readers.

In summary, if I had seen this compendium in advance, I would not have bought it for one dollar.
