Editorial Reviews

A revealing look at the untold story of Japan's atomic bomb, and how they may have detonated a nuclear device just two days before surrender. Since the end of WWII, conventional wisdom claimed that Imperial Japan was years away from building an atomic weapon--this special shatters this view. Using once secret Japanese wartime documents, we provide evidence that Japan had world-class nuclear physicists, access to uranium ore, and cyclotrons to process it. They devised an innovative way to deliver the bombsusing 400-foot long Sen Toku submarines, capable of carrying and launching airplanes. Most startling--just six days after Hiroshima, Japan tested its own atomic device on a small island 20 miles off the Korean coast. The sobering conclusion is that Japanmay have been just weeks behind the US in the race for the bomb.

I really enjoyed this DVD. If true it's amazing that Japan was able to build a test nuclear weapon. Obviously they would have to make a deliverable weapon so they may have ben a few months or more away from attempting to drop a bomb on anyone. To answer another reviewers question, most of this information came from classified documents that were recently released, you know how the US and USSR like to keep their secrets.

Definitely worth viewing.

So, Japan wasn't that far away of a nuclear weapon, was it?

The part I found particularly intriguing was that Japan apparently actually exploded a nuclear bomb on a test site in Korea. What remains unexplained, however, is why this explosion remained a secret after 1945 - I can imagine that even back in 1945 the US government would have jumped the opportunity to show the world that there had been another good reason for nuking Japan out of the war.

The documentary is solid, however, and thrilling.

Recommended.
