The day the bombing of London started – level 1


In August 1940, Germany controls many countries in Western Europe. Germany wants to control Great Britain, too.

On September 7, 1940, Germany starts to bomb London. The British send their children from London to smaller towns. The bombs destroy many houses. People in London hide in underground stations.

The attacks continue for 57 days. 20,000 people die. People in London are strong. They never give up.

The war continues. The British are stronger than the Germans. The British win the war.

Difficult words: destroy (to break very much), hide (to go to a place where people can’t see you), give up (to stop the fight because you are losing).

How did the courage and determination of Londoners help Britain win the war?
