The London Blitz

The German dictator Adolf Hitler had been on a rampage invading nations all over mainland Europe. His next target was England. His goal was to demoralize the people of London. The country’s current leader was Winston Churchill. And he knew better than to try and negotiate for peace. Hitler’s first plan of attack was to focus on the Royal Air Force. The Germans were not successful due to new technology called radar. Radar detected the German planes ahead of time using radio waves. But the Germans were still able to damage London severely. German bombers attacked London for fifty seven straight nights. The Battle of Britain was mostly an air battle. There was not much combat on the ground.
