What were the effects of the 'Blitzkrieg' on Great Britain?

Blitzkrieg created a perpetual feeling of terror in British cities where the Germans dropped bombs. The sirens would sound and citizens had minutes to run for shelter in underground cellars, basements and even the Tube stations before the bombs began to fall. The bombardment commenced both day and night, buildings were destroyed by impact and fire sometimes before their residents could escape. Many civilians were killed by the German planes even though they were far from the battle field. A useful link:
