Read about how in the early morning hours of 6 August 1945, a B-29 bomber headed for the Japanese city of Hiroshima to drop an atomic bomb. The aftermath of the bombing still affects the city's inhabitants today. This book details the events of Hiroshima and explains why this haunting event occurred. Photographs from the period provide an informative view of this tragedy.
