43 seconds to Hiroshima. For me the biggest indication of the lesson learned by Hiroshima is that an atomic bomb hasn't been used since. Yes, they are out there and by their very existence pose a potential threat, but in all the years since the war they have not been used.

is a Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber, named after Enola Gay Tibbets, mother of pilot Paul Tibbets. On 06-08-1945, during the final stages of World War II, it became the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb as a weapon of war. The bomb, code-named Little Boy, was targeted at the city of Hiroshima, Japan, and caused extensive destruction. When the bomb detonated, about 1,900 feet above the city, Death and burial ground of Nelson, Richard Dick H. Richard Nelson, the youngest of the crew, sent a coded message that was forwarded to President Harry Ship Truman. It read, Results excellent.

August 6, 1945, was the day the world was forever changed. The first atomic bomb ever used in the history of warfare was released over the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Only twelve men were privileged to be on that historic flight, and only one was allowed to be the radio operator. Richard H. Nelson invites the reader into his life and gives his unique perspective on that infamous day when Japan was brought to their knees, finally bringing the bloodiest war in the history of the world to a conclusion.

This is a interesting perspective from an enlisted man's point of view of the WW2 atomic bomb mission. After a brief self introduction, most of the book is devoted to his service life, followed by an short epilogue on postwar life and public reaction.

I'd always heard that there could be a lot of time spent on training, waiting for assignment and waiting for a mission, but this brings home that aspect of military life. There were a few details about the atomic mission that I hadn't read about before.

The co-author intercuts his story with concurrent news on how the Pacific war is going to illustrate the growing resistance that the Americans encountered from the Japanese.

I was disconcerted about the number of misspellings that I found, but this came from one of those self publishing houses.

I also question the pilot training equipment mentioned at the beginning of chapter 3. The Stearman N2S biplane is listed, but the Air Force identifier would have been PT-13 or 17, not the Navy nomenclature. The next plane detailed is a Vultee V-1A monoplane, but this is later referred to as the "Vibrator", which would actually be the BT-13 Valiant, and makes more sense. The AT-6 is described after, which is fine. He then states starting multi-engine training in a Cessna. which probably means an AT-8 or 17 Bobcat.
