The V-1 flying bomb, also known as the buzz bomb, was an early cruise missile. It was launched at London for the first time one week after the successful Allied landings in Europe. At peak, more than one hundred V-1s a day were fired at south-east England, decreasing in number as sites were overrun, until October when the last V-1 site in range of Britain was overrun by Allied forces.
