BRITISH ISLES

On the 16th of July, 1940, roughly two weeks before the publication of the first document in this collection, Hitler issued a directive, ordering preparations for an invasion of Great Britain, and the aerial Battle of Britain began shortly thereafter, with the Luftwaffe attacking on RAF bases, shipping convoys, ports, factories and infrastructure; heavily defended by the RAF. From early September, German tactics shifted to the concentrated bombing of London, and other cities (Liverpool, Hull, Bristol, Cardiff, Clydebank, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Southampton, Swansea, Birmingham, Belfast, Coventry, Glasgow, Manchester and Sheffield), now known as the Blitz. Oxford and Cambridge were spared, apparently because Hitler wished to preserve their architecture. The Luftwaffe failed to gain the upper hand and the threat of a German invasion of Britain receded in December of 1940.
