What happened was that the Luftwaffe shifted the majority of their bombing attacks from the cities of Britain to concentrate on the RAF airfields of southern England. The aim was to destroy Fighter Command who were than based at a few large airfields near the French coast. Fighter Command replied by spreading aircraft out to numerous 'satellite' airstrips, often of grass. Tactics also changed to be more effective against large bomber groups.
