Blitzkrieg or blitz stood for lightning war.
Blitz
The Blitz was where the German Luftwaffe dropped
over 500 bombs every night on the British capital
for 57 days .
3
Why did the Blitz start ?
The Blitz started when Germany missed their
target and hit homes instead of factories.
Hitler wanted to have a massive army and take
control of Europe so he could rule.
4
Air raid shelters
Anderson shelters were introduced when The Blitz
started so that people could hide from the bombs.
Anderson shelters protected people from some
bombs but they sometimes got blown up.
5
Gas masks
Gas masks were introduced in 1941 after World war
1.
Gas masks had protective gel which later turned
out to be poisonous.
But there were no gas attacks in world war two.
6
ARP wardens
ARP wardens set the blackout time by reading the
newspaper.
7
Blackouts
people used to turn off all the lights when they
were getting bombed so that the enemy planes
couldnt see London as well.
ARP wardens would set the blackout time by
reading the news paper.
The Blackout was a key part of winning the war.
8
barrage balloons
Barrage balloons were designed for anti-aircraft.
Pieces of balloon were rare collectibles.
9
V1 and V2 bombs
The V2 flew faster than sound and the V1 had
razor sharp wings to cut the wires on the barrage
balloons.
The V1 was called the doodle bug because of its
buzzing sound made by its engines.

V2

Evacuation
Children were evacuated from London to escape to
the countryside.
Did you know? Pregnant mothers were also
evacuated so that their babies were not killed.
