Drone Attack Reported in Stars and Stripes


As reported in this article from Stars and Stripes, Nazi Germany launched the first V-1 drones (pilotless flying bombs) against London in June 1944 only one week after the Allies landed at Normandy.

The Friends helped acquire collections of World War II issues of Stars and Stripes through the generosity of Bill Bealmear and of Rosalyn Knepell and Lynne Brown in memory of Al Israel. The Friends sponsor the work of Melissa Robohn in Special Collections as she acquires material on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) and makes this material available online.
