What cities did Britain bomb during the Battle of Britain?
London was one
Watch out, there's a bomb about.
Mostly German cities like Berlin, Hamburg and controversially - Dresden.
London, which was heavily bombed by the Luftwaffe. (The Luftwaffe eventually stopped the bomb runs after the Battle of Britain, which took place near the turning point of the battle for air superiority.)
the spitfires were designed and built by England in world war 2 to defend the UK in the battle of Britain when the Germans were sending planes over to bomb cities, airfields and factories.
Air campaign. An Air battle. Germany's Air Force tried to bomb England's air bases and cities in preparation of an invasion. Germany also launched their new wapon called the V2 rocket. It demolished the city of London
When the Germans decided to bomb London and other cities, (instead of continuing to attack airfields) during the Battle of Britain, the Royal Air Force recovered and was able to defeat the German Luftwaffe. The victory of the RAF helped the allies to win WW2.
During WW II, Germany attacked Britain, and Britain retaliated. That's what happens in times of war. You bomb me, and I'll bomb you. Fortunately all of that is over, and Britain and Germany are good friends in the 21st century.
Germany wanted to take over Great Britain, but since it was an island, decided to bomb it into submission
Did the allies bomb Italian aircraft on the ground used by both Axis German and Italian air forces in the Battle of Britain?
The Italians were not involved in the Battle of Britain, but rather they were in Africa.
The Battle of Britain fought was over Britain between the 10th July and 31st October 1940. This was Hitler's tactic to invade Britain however he underestimated the RAF and was defeated. Basically in two words, the BoB forced Germany to change tactics if they wanted to conquer Britain, his new strategy was to bomb major cities such as London, Plymouth, Liverpool, Southampton etc... in order to disrupt production, decrease morale and faith in the government… Read More
To terrorize the British citizens and to damage the British war effort.
The Germans bombed England constantly during World War 2. The Battle of Britain is one of the biggest victories of the Allies, preventing Germany from bombing England into submission.
The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki .
There were no battle in Hiroshima and Nagasaki but the US dropped an atomic bomb in each of those cities.
The Blitz was when the Luftwaffe(German Airforce) came over to Britain and dropped bombs down onto big cities. Their first intention was to bomb the RAF but decided to bomb the cities instead which is partly why the the blackout started. The Blackout was where the whole of Britain practically turned off all lights.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Adolf Hitler tried to bomb England into surrendering with a lightning war.
During World War I and World War II
To defend Britain from air attack and bomb German cities.
Having conquered France in 1940, Hitler turned his attention to Britain. In order to carry out his plan for an invasion he needed to establish superiority in the air. The Luftwaffe tried to destroy British air power and coastal defences, targeting airfields, ships, ports, and factories, but they were narrowly prevented by the RAF during the Battle of Britain. Because of the heavy losses that they had incurred, Hitler changed his tactics and started bombing… Read More
That was the Battle of Britain, in the summer of 1940, when the Luftwaffe tried to bomb the Royal Air Force out of existence, and were themselves beaten so badly they never fully recovered.
Great Britain definitely had bomb shelters for not only the general populace but also the government during the Blitz.
Germany's attempt to force great Britain's surrender by means of an all-out bombing attack against English cities was called battle of what?
Battle of Britain July 10-October 31 1940 Original idea was not to make British surrender because of bombing, but guarantee invasion by eliminating British air defence. But later Germans switched to bomb cities and that was probably Hitler's big mistake.
I think we bombed many cities in Japan during WWII but the two cities we dropped nuclear bombs on were Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Hiroshima and Nagasaki .
Because their losses were too high during the day.
It was only took one atomic bomb dropped over those cities.
Britain bombed the German military and other installations but when they could not achieve pinpoint accuracy they went to carpet bombing selected German areas and cities.
hirosima and nagasaki
children who lived in the cities of Britain were evacuated to the countryside, because German bombers would want to bomb big industrial cities where there are lots of people rather than countryside villages.
There were still bomb sites (i.e. collapsed buildings) in Birmingham until the 1970s
Hiroshima & Nagasaki
There were two Japanese cities , Hiroshima and Nagasaki , where the atomic bomb was employed ; see related link
The Battle of Britain was not the bombing of Britain by Hitler, but the dogfight that took place over Britain. First ,Hitler bombed the airfields of Britain which nearly destroyed all of the RAF. He then foolishly decided instead to bomb the major cities and industrial areas. This gave the British RAF time to regroup and defend. Hitlers plan was to destroy the RAF so that he could send ships (Operation Sealion) over to Britain… Read More

The two cities in Japan that the US bombed during WWII were Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
No, the Germans were first to bomb . They started bombing the centre of London in 1940 with the declared intent of terrifying the people.

This battle lasted from the 10th of July to the 31st of October 1940. In this battle the German Luftwaffe tried in vain to bomb Britain into submission whilst facing an out numbered Royal Air Force... However the Royal Air Force was a far better fighting force than the Luftwaffe and there… Read More
If you mean atomic bomb there were two dropped over Japan in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The President was Harry Truman.
Germnay bombed cities in world war two in an attempt to invade Britain. Hitler knew he could not carry out Operation Sealion, and attempt an amphibious invasion of Britain until he had demolished the RAF, and so instead, in the Battle of Britain, Hitler bombed airfields heavily in day time raids, then changed to night time raids on cities, to try to destroy british morale. Another The cities had military installations, manufacturing plants, electrical sources… Read More
London is IN Britain and didnt bomb any other part of the UK
1945 during World War II on the two Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Midway Island, and a bunch of ships in our Navy's task force.
The Japanese were defeated on a island and 1000's of planes were fire bombing their cities to ruin so there was no need to use the A bomb
The outcome of the Battle of Britain was important for the Allies because it was Germany's attempt to either bomb Britain into submission, or completely destroy its Air Force in order to conduct an amphibious assault on British shores. This would have removed the last resistance to Hitler in Europe, allowing him to focus all of his forces on Russia in the east.
