Following the retreat of the British and other allied forces from Dunkirk the Germans (Hitler etc.) felt they could overtake the British mainland as they had the Continental countries, by similar blitzkrieg tactics, Because the British channel stood in the way of invasion by land forces the Germans thought they could soften up the UK population by indiscriminate bombing. In the first fifteen months from the start of bombing 40,000 people were killed and by the end of hostilities a total of 60,000 had died. The RAF in the period called the Battle of Britain caused such a high casualty rate in German personnel and aircraft they were forced to restrict their subsequent activities. This of course was well before the US entered the war ! Hieler can't occupy England ,so he want use bomb let England submit
The Germans hoped to bomb Britain into suing for peace .
germans in planes dropping bombs on england
The reason the blitz finished was because the Germans decided that they were bored and didn't want to bomb, as they got bad arms from it
Adolf Hitler was definitely responsible since he told the Germans to bomb London.
To try and demoralize the civilian population.
The blitz generally didnt have a big impact. The Germans wanted to bomb England and they did, but they wanted us to back down, but we never did. They also wanted us to stop having food coming from other countries. We did still manage to get food and in the end make the Germans back down.
The Germans were trying to obtain air superiority in order to invade England.
because they helped England fight them in world war 2(:
what type of bombs were dropped in the Blitz by the Germans
The blitz occurred in England when the Nazi Germans began dropping bombs on London in September 7th 1940 and it continued through May 10, 1941. After the Normandy Invasion the Germans began bombing again but that time period was not officially called the blitz.
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.
it was the first defeat for the germans
The Germans did a blitz on Great Britain during World War 2.
Because Hitler was very angry with Britain, and wanted to expand his policy which Britain didnt want so he attacked them.
the Germans flew over England to bomb factories, docks, cities, airfields and radar stations to weakened England in preparation for operation sealion, the invasion of England which in the end was aborted as the Germans couldn't gain air superiority over Britain due to the RAF being stronger than the Germans had first thought. so basically German planes flew over Britain to bomb it.
It was initially a response to a British air raid on Germany. But the Germans wanted to demonstrate overwhelming destructive power and soften up the British so that a planned invasion could go ahead.
Resources and land.
The Blitz and the lightning war are two different things.The Blitz is the continuous German bombings England suffered in 1940.The lightning war - (Blitzkreig) is the strategy used by Germans during WW2 to breakthough rapidly the ennemi's defense, based on armored tanks (Panzer).
blaaaaa What do you mean? Much of England was bombed to bits but the Germans also bombed cities in Scotland, Wales and even managed to reach Ireland.
because by the time the bomb was ready the Germans were pretty much beaten already.
No the Germans did not bomb the USA. We did. The Germans would call it "Blitzkrieg"
The Germans surrendered before the bomb was tested successfully.
They used nuclear and atomic bombs.
