I've made several updates on this rather minor operation against Scarpanto/ Karpathos, but they illustrate a couple of points:^^^ We succeed inspite of our best efforts to derail ourselves
1. What looks to dear Girolamo like a formidable amphibious capability looks like chaos from the Allied side. The full quote from which the title of part 5 is taken goes: 'man cannot tell, but Allah knows/ how much the other side is hurt.'
2. One tentative difference I have with the original FFO is how soon the Allies could commence an amphibious offensive in the Mediterranean. I think in original OTL they already start to take islands in 1940. To me, the choreography required for successful amphibious operations has always seemed extraordinary, and the skills required take time to develop, so I don't think the offensive can really get under way until 1941, as here.
