In late 1944, Japan released the first of more than nine thousand Fugo Balloon bombs into the Pacific Jet Stream, launching a long-range aerial attack on North America. It has been estimated that nearly six hundred of the deadly bombs may still be undiscovered. A media silence on this story made the attack unknown to most people. On a Wind and a Prayer takes an in-depth look at the balloon bomb offensive and its place in World War II history.

Very Interesting Program

Comments about PBS On a Wind and a Prayer DVD:

As an Oregonian,I found this program very interesting. These bombs are/were part of our history as the incident in Bly can attest. I was especially interested in the washi construction of the balloons and their engineering.
