Blitz Street Series – ‘The Hermann’ – Part 2 of 4

The Hermann

Blitz Street is on the receiving end of one of the largest bombs the Luftwaffe ever dropped on Britain: the SC1000, nicknamed ‘The Hermann’.


A bomb this large was designed to cause massive damage to the infrastructure of industrial Britain.


With the aid of harrowing and moving eye-witness testimonies, the programme also recounts the Luftwaffe’s horrendous bombing of Coventry on 14 November 1940 and the campaign to destroy Britain’s manufacture of munitions. © Channel 4 BBC UK
