75 years ago-the Fugo bombs

There were many things happening in World War 2 75 years ago. One of them was Japan launching their little-known weapon against the US. This started on Nov 3, 1944.

You may have heard of Japan’s Fugu fish:

But the Fugo bomb was something else.

This was then the weapon with the longest range, as they successfully crossed the Pacific to land on the west coast of the US.

And they were the only example of an enemy attack causing fatalities on the US mainland during wartime. 9/11 was not a wartime attack.
