    A useful source of new information. Interesting to see how complicated the flight was and how lucky and uncertain was the second drop

    Great read

    A wonderful account of an unfortunately necessary event in history. Those who condemn the use of the weapon don't understand the context of the time, which the book explains well.

    To Ella

    A strong male walked in, face shrouded by a white mask. He had a list in his hand of things his Boss told him to make this girl do, and that he must record the reactions. It was his job, of course. Blonde hair poked around the mask, and he approachd her keenly. /Wanna go to res 6?\
