The bombing of London actually helped the RAF (10/10)

List item

Despite the fact that the Blitz is known infamously as one of the most trying times for Britain during the war, the reality is that it was an impulsive military operation ordered by Hitler as an act of petty revenge for the bombing of Berlin by Allied fighter pilots. The aim of the Luftwaffe – to secure aerial dominance over Britain – was not actually assisted in any way through the bombing of civilian infrastructure in London, and military historians have considered it to be one of the greatest blunders of Hitler’s military career. As a result of the raids on the civilian population, the RAF were able to easily recuperate their losses, and were relieved of much of the pressure they had faced before.
