With the fall of France, Great Britain stood alone against the Nazis.
New British Prime Minister Winston Churchill already proclaimed that his nation “shall never surrender.”
Hitler turned his attention to an invasion of England.
Operation Sea Lion was designed to knock out the Royal Air Force (RAF) and to land 250,000 troops on British shores.
In Sept. 1940, German planes began to bomb London on a daily basis. While outnumbered, the British were the first to use radar as a warning system and they were also able to crack German code.
Hitler was shocked by British resistance and by May 1941, gave up the idea of capturing England.
This gave the Allies hope that they could successfully stand up to Hitler’s aggression.
