Battle of Britain

Germany and Britain go head to head in the Battle of Britain. Germany had been bombing and attacking Britain and on July 10, 120 German bombers and fighters struck a British shipping convoy. The air war started on August 12th and lasted until October 31, when Britain defeated Germany. This would be the first defeat on Hitler's military forces. Being the first set back for Germany, it gave hope to the Europeans so they could see that Germany WASNT unstoppable. The goal was for German to get superiority over Southern England.

Military Strategies

Germany came daily and dropped bombs. They switched the roles of the ships and brought in bombs. This almost made Germany win.
