Frightening but important book about the Nagasaki bombing and its aftereffects, told through the eyes of five of the survivors. Interesting is the fact that the city had a substantial foreign population, as well as a whole section of the city that was Christian. What are mind-boggling is the extent to which the Japanese and American governments collaborated to cover up the true extent of the effects of radiation on the population of the city. and the repeated attempts by American veterans to fight against setting up any "balanced" exhibitions that would have told the story from both sides, particularly at the Smithsonian. This book is a good addition to the cries of "never again" when it comes to using nuclear devices as a tool of war.
A book that removes the layers of shame, pride, and decades of censorship, Nagasaki: Life After Nuclear War takes a fresh look at the bomb that “ended the war.”
Must read book. Everyone should read it.
Haunting, but beautifully written, history of the Nagasaki nuclear bomb explosion and the aftermath as told through the stories of five grievously wounded survivors.
