On September 7, 1940, 300 German bombers raid London, in the first of 57 consecutive nights of bombing. This bombing “blitzkrieg” (lightning war) would continue until May 1941.

After the successful occupation of France, it was only a matter of time before the Germans turned their sights across the Channel to England. Hitler wanted a submissive, neutralized Britain so that he could concentrate on his plans for the East, namely the land invasion of the Soviet Union, without interference. Since June, English vessels in the Channel had been attacked and aerial battles had been fought over Britain, as Germany attempted to wear down the Royal Air Force in anticipation of a land invasion. But with Germany failing to cripple Britain’s air power, especially in the Battle of Britain, Hitler changed strategies. A land invasion was now ruled out as unrealistic; instead Hitler chose sheer terror as his weapon of choice.

British intelligence had had an inkling of the coming bombardment. Evidence of the large-scale movement of German barges in the Channel and the interrogation of German spies had led them to the correct conclusion-unfortunately, it was just as the London docks were suffering the onslaught of Day One of the Blitz. By the end of the day, German planes had dropped 337 tons of bombs on London. Even though civilian populations were not the primary target that day, the poorest of London slum areas-the East End–felt the fallout literally, from direct hits of errant bombs as well as the fires that broke out and spread throughout the vicinity. Four hundred and forty-eight civilians were killed that afternoon and evening.

  1. Wilno ( Vilnius) was NOT predominantly Lithuanian speaking city. It had approx 4% of population identifying themself as Lithuanian speaking in 1916 ( when part of Russia) and less than 1% in 1931 when Wilno was part of second Polish republic

  2. People either forgot ,or or never knew in the first place that no matter what side these soldiers fought on they where all pawns in rich men's games. And still to this day it goes on and on ,in fact I don't know of a time in human history when this wasn't happening…now we have the military industrial complex everywhere run by corporations…Point is no one should think badly of the German army or any other army they where just like us. What would you have done…..whatever they told you to!

  6. This will leave you speechless, in awe of how wonderful it is:

    Promises are made by a king or 'governor' who not only has the power to fulfill those promises, but has the desire to fulfill them, according to Isaiah 9: 6, which says:

    "Because a child has been born to us, a son has been given to us; and the government will be in his hands. He will be called by his name Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."

    His kingdom will never be defeated or replaced, according to Daniel 2:44, which says:

    "In the days of those kings, the God of heaven will establish a kingdom that will never be destroyed or passed into the hands of any other people. This kingdom will shatter and put an end to all those kingdoms, and will be the only one that will remain forever. . "

    Unmatched, right? Well, there are more blessings …

  7. picture 47: why in the hell is should Hitler crawling behind a soldier in the snow one year before WW2 ending. What a big BS you told hear. There are people who going to believe this massive pile of BS. Next you try to told that he was in the kettle at Stahlingrad. The most pictures shown here I never seen in my life and I thank for that, but telling false comments on them is….I can't find words for what a BS this is. And if it was a joke, it was a bad one.

  8. #49 The ruins of Joachim Peipers home in France contains some TOTALLY false accusations about his "War Crimes" YES he was convicted of shooting unarmed soldiers in BATTLE. He was NEVER accused of murdering civillians. WHO writes this idiotic drivle ?
