London tried to take some measures to defend themselves. Air Raid shelters were built. To help prevent the Germans from seeing where the towns were, a blackout was rigorously enforced after darkness. However, these bombings happened constantly, so there was no guarantee of anybodies protection.
its gonna be okay, guys.
May 11th was the final day of the Blitz. Hitler abandoned the Blitz and most of the Luftwaffe were re-assigned east in preparation for Germany's invasion of Russia. Sporadic raids still continued for several years. The end of the Blitz saw a return of evacuees and the start of the reconstruction of London – even though building materials were in short supply. The docks had been devastated, as had many industrial and residential districts, including the historic heart of the City.
Theres not as much air rades as there was before, Heidi!
While Britain did eventually recover, it took some time. They blitz had made them suffer multiple losses, both in people and financially. Hundreds of buildings were burned, and reconstruction was desperatly needed. In the end of the blitz, it costed the lives of 32,000 civillians, and injured 87,000 others.
around 5 years later....
Today, London is thriving. Many people argue that the Blitz was unjust, because there was no formal declaration, it killed thousands of innocent civillians, and there was no clear goal for the Blitz in the first place.
