Battle of Berlin vs. the Battle of London
As the war between England and Germany progressed, the opposing nations became more and more willing to bomb each other's cities. This exposed more and more women, children and civilians to the dangers.
The Germans had the advantage of distance. They only had the fly the 100 miles from the occupied coast of France to London, allowing them to make two or more bombings a night.
The British, not gaining any advantage by bombing French cities had to fly the nearly 700 miles to Berlin, which cost much more in fuel and aircraft.
