During World War II, in the middle of 1944, the Allied forces were gaining ground against Germany. With the invasion of Normandy, Germany was on its back foot. In spite of this massive setback, Germany was not ready to let up.
On June 13, 1944, a week after Normandy, a loud buzzing sound rattled through the skies of battle-worn London. Seconds later, a never seen before flying object crashed and exploded on one of the civilian establishments in the city. Dozens perished.
British intelligence soon discovered that it was a new weapon developed by Germany. They called it V-1.
On its debut night, 9 more V-1s were fired across the English channel. Fortunately, only four of them managed to strike England. But that was just the beginning. Over the next few months, Germany shot 13,000 of those V-1s.
