With the Blitz Beginning of the Blitz/ Background Info. The Blitz was actually started on accident when on August 24, 1940, a few of the Luftwaffe bombers drifted off course from their original and accidentally bombed the civilian city and British capitol of London instead of the nearby base they intended to hit. This enraged England due to the fact that they thought the civilian bombing was on purpose so they sent a small bomber force of it's own to bomb the German capitol of Berlin the next day. This attack caused chaos in Germany because the civilians were led to believe that the British would never be able to bomb Berlin. Hitler's response was to unleash the full force of the Luftwaffe bombing force onto the city of London, and on September 7, 1940 began the bombing of London that would continue for nearly 60 consecutive nights.

British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was a very important figure during the Blitz, he gave the orders to bomb Germany, which started the Blitz, after the first accidental bombs fell on London. He also inspired the people of London, and other cities that were part of the Blitz, to carry on as usual and to never lose hope, even in the time of despair.
