The Blitz aerial bombing offensive lasted for eight months during the early stages of the Second World War, including 57 consecutive nights of raids on the city of London. On the evening of Saturday May 10, 1941 the Luftwaffe mounted its last major bombing raid of the Blitz on London, known as 'The Longest Night', bringing to an end a deadly campaign that killed over 20,000 people in the capitol, left another 1.5 million Londoners homeless and changed the London landscape more than at any time since the Great Fire of 1666. The British fortitude and defiance amidst such chaos gave rise to the term 'Blitz spirit'. (Photo by Jim Dyson/Getty Images)
