That is why Clive A. Lawton's "Hiroshima: The Story of the First Atom Bomb" looks at not only the bombing of Hiroshima, but the politics and science behind that military decision as well as the consequences that extend to this day. Lawton, a former high school principal in Liverpool, England, has written and broadcast extensively on moral and religious issues that affect education, and I thought there was an indication of something akin to an agenda when the front flap of the book refers to the bombing of Hiroshima as a "disaster.
On August 6, 1945, the United States of America dropped the world's first atomic bomb, on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, a decision that ushered in the nuclear age and marked the end of World War II. When the atomic bomb exploded at 8:15 . 70,000 people were killed instantly. Thousands more were dead of radiation sickness within weeks. More still were sick, scarred, and deformed for the rest of their lives by the chemicals in the bomb. Three days later, a second bomb killed 40,000 people in Nagasaki.
In this extraordinary resource for young readers, Clive A. Lawton clearly and objectively explores the politics and the science behind the military decision that would set in motion the nuclear arms race.
