Vatican Bombing

Vatican City: a small country surrounded completely by Italy and run solely by and for the Catholic church, however, not even they could escape the cauldron of WWII.

In 1943, the Italians ordered a single bomber to attack the Vatican. They believed that the Vatican radio was broadcasting coded messages to the allies. They were mistaken, however, it was a moot point as all the dropped bombs missed their mark, causing minor damage and no casualties.
