Yes, Lisa, the war.. it was a terrible time! Your
country suffered, but Britain had more than its fair
share too. After the enemy had taken Belgium
and France they turned on us. They sent planes
to bomb the arms factories so that the air force -
that's the RAF - wouldn't have the strength to
fight back. They also attempted to destroy our
radars, but luckily they failed miserably to
achieve that. It seems Goering somehow missed
the point so he wasn't as clever as we thought,
fortunately. And then the air raids on London!
They began on the seventh of September 1940:
three nights in a row and we didn't even have any
decent guns to fire back! Later, when we had the
power to retaliate, they simply flew higher. It
lasted until mid November. Every night there
would be 200 raids... you just can't imagine the
damage and casualties... 43,000 killed and
139,000 injured. So many houses destroyed too.
But they never got us to surrender!
