*65 Years Ago...

September 7 will be the 65th anniversary of the start of the London Blitz. Hitler thought bombing London would demoralize the people and cause the poor to revolt against the government.

The British government conspicuously failed to collapse.

The British people conspicuously failed to be demoralized.

Roughly 43,000 civilians died. Roughly 1,000,000 homes were destroyed.

London survived.

Hitler did not.
