In today's terms it commonly used to emphasise shock and/or amazement or anger. However it came into large use in the British context during World Wars' 1 & 2 whereby soldiers would describe it as a "bloody hell".

The intense meaning has waned over the years to become a common 'filler' in utterance. However, given if someone survived a nuclear war, if it happened 21st C, would it change to "nukem hell!" ? Sounds a bit Australian to me.
Me: Grandad?

Grandad: Yes

Me: What was it like fighting in the war?

Grandad: It was a bloody hell.

"Bloody Hell" is an exclusively British phrase. It's a general exclamation, which can be used in many situations. You can use it to express shock, joy, shame, sadness... whatever.
But say it with a Scottish or English accent. It sounds weird when Americans say it
"Bloody Hell, it's freezing outside".
"Bloody Hell, that's amazing".
"Bloody Hell, I feel like crap."
"Bloody Hell, get off me!"
