On the evening of August 25th British bombers struck at Berlin, dropping their bombs on the very heart of Hitler’s most prized city. Incensed, Hitler ordered that London be “razed to the ground” and that her people be beaten and bombed into submission. Shortly before four o’clock on September 7th three hundred German bombers, with an escort of six hundred fighters, arrived in two huge waves, their target, the London docks. The bombers dropped their incendiaries on some of the poorest and most overcrowded streets of London, their slum buildings and poorly built tenement houses more vulnerable than most to the pounding blast of bombs and the ensuing fires. The Blitz had begun... But the British people refused to be cowered. This is the real story.
