  • Published 1 year ago

This 1995 documentary / ABC news special explores the Hiroshima bombings and why the decision was made to drop the bomb which took away so many millions of lives. It's been justified ever since as something which saved American lives, but was it really necessary and did it shorten the war? Or was there an alternative. Hiroshima was the only atomic bomb ever dropped on a nation at war, but people are incredibly uneducated about the circumstances surrounding the bomb, since most WW2 history centres around the nazis and the fall of Germany.
