The blitz

FACTOID: It is claimed that more people died during the English blitzkrieg by being trampled during crowd panics than by the actual bombs the Germans rained on Great Britain. Much of the rubble from the bombing was hauled out of the cities and used as fill for construction of Allied airfields throughout the nation. Ironically it would be from these airfields that countless sorties of Allied bombers would fly out of on their way to targets deep inside the Third Reich.
