Systematic debunking of various contentions that the atomic bombs dropped on Japan were unnecessary to attain a rapid surrender, and that Truman and other American leaders knew this but ordered the bombs used for their own nefarious purposes. It is astonishing that such hogwash is so frequently found among academics who completely ignore the Japanese side of the surrender story, which was at best stalemated in a determination to continue the conflict to a slaughter of Allied troops during the apparently inevitable invasion of the home islands. The author links the "Hiroshima cult" to the now besmirched cult of the "peaceful atom" as the solution to all energy needs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
