The bombing of Hull was kept secret in the press for the first couple of years of the war for two reasons. Because Hull was a port and could be reached easily by boat from Germany, it was important that the enemy didn’t know how much damage they were doing. It was also important to keep the morale of British citizens up. Low morale would mean the war effort suffered. In Hull, ninety-five percent of the houses were destroyed or damaged https://www.mylearning.org/stories/the-hull-blitz/345?
