Editorial Reviews

Review

“Much of the material included here has been treated before in other books . . . but the authors's approach is essentially journalistic and they have dramatized the events leading up to the actual dropping of the bomb and the circumstances in which the citizens of the two demolished cities found themselves, and the result is a vivid and horrifying picture. Basically, though, their book is an objective one, and they refrain from making the moral comment . . . which was forcefully presented in Michael Amrine's book The Great Decision.”–Kirkus

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Hiram Gomez Pardo HALL OF FAME on November 15, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Fifteen years after the throwing of "Fat boy" over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, these bold and dared investigators scratched and could access to trustworthy sources of undeniable credibility, the most complete and relevant study about this painful issue that still remains as an ethic hammer beating the conscious of so many people having elapsed sixty years of this event.

The multiplicity of the approach is precisely what it confers the book its fascinating interest. They made an overwhelming analysis, going to the same places where the events happened and focusing from multiple perspectives, in search of the truth, because as all of us know the truth by itself is simply an utopia.

A kinetic and itinerant journey through one of the most sorrowful episodes of the WW2. A historical document of invaluable transcendence.
