Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Reason for the question:
My wife is asserting that everyone knows that "the blitzkrieg" was Germany bombing London, not tanks and infantry.

So I did a poll, here and on G+. Overwhelmingly it appears that "everyone" considers the blitzkrieg to be tanks and infantry in Poland and/or France.
Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New British perspective
The bombing of London (and Coventry, and Birmingham, and Liverpool, and Bristol, and so on) is very definitely and specifically "The Blitz", and never "The Blitzkrieg".
New Bing!
Oh, *that* just caused some fireworks, since she had just said to me that "well, I'm sure that's not what someone from *England* would say..." ;-)

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New rofl!
New Check...
Although from the Continental perspective, it was more like "Huh? What just happened???"
New Stukas first. Then tanks + infantry.
