The Battle of Britain

Josie Falcon

1940 July-October

The Battle of Britain was a four month long battle between the Germans and the British during WWII. The battle was fought entirely in the air and was an attempt by Hitler to take over Britain. People living in Britain at the time were very frightened. They built bomb shelters and were to go in them if the sirens were to sound indicating there was danger. Children wore gas masks to school to protect themselves from chemicals that they man be exposed to. Eventually the Nazi's gave up and focused their efforts on the defeat of Russia.
