The appearance of German bombers in the skies over London during the afternoon of 7 September 1940 heralded a tactical shift in Hitler's attempt to subdue Great Britain. At around 4:00 PM 348 German bombers escorted by 617 fighters blasted London until 6:00 PM. Two hours later, guided by the fires set by the first assault, a second group of raiders commenced another attack that lasted until 4:30 the following morning. This was the beginning of the Blitz - a period of intense bombing of London and other cities that continued until 11 May 1941 when Hitler called off the raids in order to move his bombers east in preparation for Germany's invasion of Russia.
