A few weeks ago, Paul posted about a plan the U.S. military cooked up during WWII to destroy Japan by triggering volcanic explosions
. The article below describes a similarly mad plan -- the Bat Bomb. The idea was to strap incendiary devices to bats, and then drop the bats on Japanese cities.
I scanned the article from the Atlantic Monthly
, December 1946. I think this was one of the first public descriptions of the bat bomb.
