Hut 5 – The Blitz

Blitzkrieg

The Blitzkrieg, or ‘lightning war’, technique was a new and dynamic approach to war. Its use of speed and shock tactics enabled it to be used to great effect against Poland, which was completely devastated by it.

German Secret Weapons – V1 and V2

German scientists were far in advance of any other country so far as Secret Weapons were concerned and there were 86 different rocket projects in progress at the end of the War.

The Blackout

The fear of uncovered lights being used as beacons for incoming German aircraft, led to the imposition of the Blackout from the outbreak of war, until 17th September 1944.
