Product Details

This thoroughly researched book covers the fu-go campaign launched by the Japanese military towards the end of WWII. Deploying thousands of high altitude hydrogen balloons armed with highly explosive bombs and incendiary devices designed to exploit the westerly winds, the military intended to create devastation by setting vast swaths of the Untied States on fire wreaking havoc. Though 600 balloons landed in the United States, the intended havoc never occured. So what actually did happen? Dive into this obscure incident via this deeply researched book by Ross Coen, an expert on Western American history.
