Decision to Drop the Atomic Bomb by Dennis D. Wainstock
Book DescriptionThis book describes in detail the efforts of Imperial Japan to seek an honorable surrender and the decision by the United States to drop two atomic bombs on Japan in August 1945. While the main focus is on the political aspects, every facet of the decision made by President Harry Truman is also examined, including the military and logistical situation of Japan and the United States during the final year of the war. The end of the war and the Potsdam Conference play a key part in the unfolding drama and the imperial decisions that led to the Japanese surrender.
