In late summer 1940, Germany planned to invade Britain but had to have air superiority first. The Luftwaffe launched bombing raids against British airfields, mostly in southeast England, with the intention of putting the airfields out of action and destroying the aircraft on the ground. The British Royal Air Force shot down so many of the German planes that they considered the losses to be too high and abandoned plans for the invasion. If the Germans had been successful, Britain would have been occupied like most other European countries. The outcome of the battle was so important that it became known as the 'Battle of Britain'.
