    Wonderfully written. It really made me cry. I was also disgusted at one of the pilots that dropped the bomb and how he didn't feel bad at all, was even doing recreations and was getting paid!! Sick. That's all I can say. The book is beautiful and written through the eyes of so many people and how those last few days before the bomb these people went about life, much like we do now. But as I read this, I was hoping the ending would change. Of course it didn't and it wasn't easy to read. The book also does a great job at teaching us why the bomb was dropped and how it could have been avoided if the "Big People" in government weren't power playing each other. It wasn't just Japan and the USA power tripping for supremacy. And I was surprised to learn why the Japanese finally surrendered and how much/ or not (won't give it away) the bomb actually played a part in this. Had it been worth it? I know how I feel after reading this book and I've read others on the subject but this one really showed depth.

    Read it & enjoy it. This book walks you through what happened from both the side of the USAAC air crews and the Japanese on the ground. It also covers some of the political machinations inside the Japanese Government during the surrender, or not, discussions.PS. Enola Gay is in the Smithsonian Museum (Washington, D. C.) & Bock's Car is in the US Air Force Museum (Dayton, Ohio)A close look at the photos of the aircraft shows something quite unique about them. No guns! And, no cutouts for the guns! This allowed the aircraft to basically fly above the service ceiling of the Japanese fighter aircraft. Only five of these special models were made (at the Offutt Field factory in Omaha, Nebraska) & only these two still exist.Two other books worth reading: War's End, by Charles Sweeney (available on AMAZON) and Decision at Nagasaki by Fred Olivi (privately published). Sweeney was the aircraft commander and the pilot. Olivi was the second co-pilot on Bock's Car. Both flew the Nagasaki mission.

    Fascinating and a 'man in the street' recounting of the terrors of Nagasaki and the atom bomb attack. Well researched and written and well worth reading.

    Shows the human side to this moment of history.!makes you feel sorry for the suffering of the Japanese people, and the country as a whole ,like so many people today follwing the word of the state without question.....................do we ever learn ?
