London 1917-1918, “The Bomber Blitz”: By Ian Castle
A documentary of the German World War I nocturnal bomber offensive against London during 1917 to 1918. Giant multiengine aircraft such as the Gotha heavy bombers and the even larger, Staaken ‘Giant’ bombers were used to bomb London during the “Great War”. These nocturnal raids continued until May 1918. The British response to these German raids was the development of an early warning aircraft detection network, anti-aircraft gun rings, and fast fighter interceptors that were the defensive foundation that would protect the United Kingdom later during the Battle of Britain in WWII.
