Jamie Holmes is the author of 12 Seconds of Silence: How a Team of Inventors, Tinkerers, and Spies Took Down a Nazi Superweapon. World War II German V bombers took 12 seconds to drop on their targets. The Allied Forces' anti-aircraft weapons couldn’t stop them. Mr. Holmes told the story of a group of scientists, engineers, and others who came together to create the world’s first “smart weapon” to combat those German bombers. Museums on the Green hosted and provided the video for this program. close
