    In 1943 an unknown aircraft from either the British, American, German, or Italian military dropped four bombs over the Vatican. They fell in the Vatican Gardens near the Vatican Radio receiver, Vatican Tribunal (diplomatic housing), a mosaics workshop, and the Vatican Archpriest's office. What if the bombs had fallen more to the East, hitting the far more densely built areas of the Vatican such as St. Peters Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, and the Papal Apartments? What if it also turned out that the bombs had been deliberately dropped by a British or American pilot?
