It's the 75th anniversary of the blitz which killed over 43,000 people as the Germans tried to gain air superiority over the British.
"The Germans tried to disrupt imports of food - and docks in places like Plymouth, Liverpool, and Belfast were targeted," according to the story."
The Imperial War Museum also has a good retrospective in association with Horrible Histories.
My thanks to my colleague, James Dahlgren, for sending me the link.
