Nov 23, Ian rated it did not like it Shelves: He also writes of the Japanese personalities working at the same time.
It’s consequences were greater than those of any other event of the war. My favorite part was at the very beginning where everyone lamented being in Wendover, Utah.

It presents a rich picture of the complexity that involve this fact for all the persons americans and japanese that were involved in this milestone of human history. Apart from a single kidney-shaped hill in the eastern sector of the city, about half a mile long and two hundred feet high, Hiroshima was uniformly exposed to the spreading energy that big bombs generate.
In fact the bomb exploded directly over Shima Hospital instantly vaporizing the people in it.
Get to Know Us. The United States killedpeople in one night of firebombing Tokyo. There destelloo a lot of information about the secrecy surrounding the creation of the bombs and the training of the pilots, the thoughts and actions of the people involved, and a look at what was going on in Japan as well.
Adding an important dimension to the book is the parallel interweaving of what was happening to Japanese at the same time as well as the various avenues of negotiation to bring an end to the Japanese war, which were ongoing. I have always considered Truman ds great man for ordering the dropping of the bomb. To ask other readers questions about Enola Gayplease sign up.

This book chronicles the events that led to one of the most important turning point in the history of the World War 2 and it does that masterfully. It bounces back and forth so much that I got a little confused, having to go back and reread parts.
The dossiers represented the most thorough secret investigation until then carried out in the name of the U. The facts speak for themselves: This also includes snippets of how the bomb was developed and what was happening in Japan. This is a detailed description of the preparation for the use of atomic bombs in the Second World War – recounting the time from Sept until August Colonel Tibbetts as he prepared the Bombing Group for the mission over Japan; and Officer Yokoyama in charge of the anti-aircraft guns on the hills surrounding Hiroshima.
He had his first story published at nine years old in a Boy’s Own Paper competition. Finally, I thought it did a pretty fair job of portraying a wide array of perspectives, including the Japanese one.

Enola Gay: The Bombing of Hiroshima by Gordon Thomas
The one detail I remember vividly is the arming of the Bomb on the way to Dde. All in all a must read for people interested in history. Well written and reads like a novel. And Japan had no intention to surrender until the Soviet Union ed war on them and the US delivered the coup With all the atrocities that Japan committed during the Second World War, it is galling for some Japanese lunatics to make Hiroshima as a shrine for hirosgima.
It hit the perfect spot as a history book in terms of offering the right level of depth on a subject so as to avoid going too deep in the weeds or being too shallow and not addressing important matters. What’s truly amazing is the degree of secrecy and layers of code words and euphemistic language.
