To achieve this, his Luftwaffe had to gain air superiority over the Royal Air Force. This involved sending wave after wave of fighter planes to engage and destroy the British air force, as well as destroying important military targets on the ground. This primarily aerial battle is known as the Battle of Britain. During one such raid, a German aircraft strayed over London, dropping bombs in the east and northeast of town. This event prompted Britain to retaliate on Berlin, and started a new and tragic phase of the war.
