Title: Example: Battle of Britain

Action: Show various images of German fighters, and Hitler in order to illustrate Germany's lack of concentration on their objectives. Also, show the following text:

Lack of concentration of purpose during the Battle of Britain resulted in Germany losing the battle

Voice: During World War Two’s Battle of Britain, the German Luftwaffe failed to properly concentrate in purpose and resulted in defeat. During the battle, Germany inadvertently struck London while targeting RAF airfields. In return, the RAF retaliated and bombed Berlin. Hitler, incensed about the RAF striking of Germany, changed his objective and bombed London. This change was a lack of concentration of purpose on the Luftwaffe’s behalf and was a significant factor in Germany losing the battle.
