This short film gives a couple's insight on the 1940 London Blitz. This is also my attempt at a Romance film, so go a little easy on me ;)The movie centers on the September 7th attack by over 300 German bombers on the East End of London, while Residential areas were not the original focus of the attack, bad aiming and inadequate bombsights meant many of the bombs fell on the city itself, rather than on her port facilities.Many British civilians were fearful out of rememberance of what had happened to the Dutch city of Roetterdam only five months earlier in May. Luftwaffe command had terror-bombed the city and many civilians were killed.The Battle of Britain was Germany's attempt to demoralize the British public into submission through bombing, however it had the opposite result and strengthened their resolve.The Second World War was the last conflict where the strategy of a bomber was terror bomb a nation into surrendering, as this strategy never truly worked and caused many needless deaths.So with this film I hope to take you back in time, to the battle over London. That is, the blitz.
