The Blitz was the sustained strategic bombing of Britain by Nazi Germany between 7 September 1940 and 10 May 1941, during the Second World War. The Blitz hit many towns and cities across the country, but it began with the bombing of London for 76 consecutive nights. By the end of May 1941, over 40,000 civilians, half of them in London, had been killed by bombing and more than a million houses were destroyed or damaged in London alone.
