A Nagasaki Report

A Nagasaki Report, previously censored

The devastation in the wake of the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki 1945 was secretly reported by George Weller but later held back by MacArthur. Reading the story is both fascinating and terrifying at the same time.

I remember writing about the atomic bomb in high school, concluding that the dropping of both bombs were utterly unnecessary, and served one purpose only: to show Russia that the US was prepared to use them.
