What was the blitz in WW2?
(when the Germans bombed England) WHO EVER WROTE THAT LET ME IMPROVE.#
The Blitz was the BOMBING CAMPAIGN carried out on British cities and towns by the Germans during ww2. War was declared on September 3, 1939, but the first few months were called the 'Phoney War' as little seemed to happen. The retreat of the British forces from Dunkirk in June 1940 was followed by the intense BATTLE OF BRITAIN fought in skies over southern Britain until September 1940. The Blitz then began, and lasted until May 1941
My name is ADMYAMAMOTO 129Z, I've been answering all these ww2 questions. Anyways the Blitz was when Hermann Goring launched the full scale bombing of British airbases, factories, and cities to cripple Britain for a German invasion of the U.K. It ultimately was a failure that ended Germany's air superiority.
London was bombed rather heavily in WW2, an event which was known as the Blitz of London, because German bombers dropped bombs on London by accident, and Churchill used it as an excuse to mount a deliberate bombing on Berlin. Hitler of course was outraged and ordered his bombers to attack London full scale.
The Liverpool blitz was the period when German aircraft bombed Liverpool extensively during WW2. The worst period was between August 1940 and May 1941. The raids were the most heavy outside London. The targets were primarily the docks and the transport infrastructure supporting them. Liverpool and Birkenhead comprised the largest port complex on the west coast.
