ABSTRACT
The article reflects on Great Britain's chances of winning against Germany's ferocious air attacks during World War II. German Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler did not strike until he is thoroughly prepared. Their air raids were followed by daylight attacks in larger numbers. Heavy losses led the British to think that the chief danger was past. However, despite the destruction brought by the raids, it will take time for even the largest air armada to cover all the vital centers of Great Britain.
