2015 is the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima, when, at 8.15am, an atomic bomb was dropped over the Japanese city, killing one hundred thousand men, women and children in its white fury. John Hersey's spare, devastating report on the attack was first published in the New Yorker in 1946. Written in the immediate aftermath of the disaster, it chronicles what happened through the eyes of six civilians who survived against the odds. It is a classic piece of journalism, and a defining moment of the nuclear age. 'One of the most powerful writers of modern times' Washington Post

Its no wonder this book won many awards when first published. It is excellent and very informative on the lives of those affected by the after effects of the bomb. Fully recommended.
