What new technology did the Royal Air Force use to stop German airplanes?

The most usual answer would probably be Radar. However, the Germans also had radar at the same time as the British, but used it differently. Although radar gave the RAF advanced warning of approaching enemy aircraft, the way the information was used to vector fighter squadrons to their targets was probably the main reason the RAF held the Luftwaffe at bay during the batle of Britain.

What was the early bombing strategy of the British air force?

In early 1942, the British were making early plans for bombing raids on the German home front. Lord Cherwell unveiled the best plan that the British air force could create at that time in the war. It was determined that until war supply factories could be found and targeted, the best approach, until better plans could be developed was to bomb working class towns in order to do the most damage to German morale. At the time, this plan was only revealed to British cabinet members. Later, when the US was able to participate in bombing strategies, the locations of other sites would be discussed.
