 Most of these weapons did not see any combat action, however, the balloon bombs were used and a family in Oregon was killed when they encountered one of these explosives.  This fact will be mentioned briefly in class, and will be contextualized with the statistics surrounding the deployment of these balloon bombs during the second World War.  
Additionally, the bat bomb does utilize actual bats in their explosive endeavors.
