Nov 23, Ian rated it did not like it Shelves: I was really looking forward to reading this book so to say I was disssapointed is an understatement.
I was hoping for something that might demonstrate some compassion, something that would touch me and resonate with me but what I got was a lacklustre account of the building of a weapon of mass destruction, how the team that detonated it was formed and a short epilogue of the after events.
It is very factual and might suit a military historian however half the material didn’t seem relevant and i I was really looking forward to reading this book so to say I was disssapointed is an understatement. It is very factual and might suit a military historian however half the material didn’t seem relevant and it felt like the author had scraped around to try and find enough facts to make up a book.
I found myself skipping larger and larger sections as I continued to read about totally irrellevant material such as what the pilots of the bomber had for dinner that evening. What did come across though was almost a sense of pride in what had been acheived by the Americans summed up by the words of Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay when asked whether he had any regrets: If you give me the same circumstances, hell yeah, I’d do it again.
View all 10 comments. Lots of ironies and happenstance surrounded the delivery of the first atomic bomb. FDR backed the beginning of the Manhattan Project without the knowledge of Congress using money off the books.
Had he forgotten about it or lied about it he would not have been chosen. They were looking for someone who could be totally honest.

Because of that his name would be forever enshrined with the bomb and Hiroshima, a city he had never heard of. Use of the bomb was never a certainty. Neils Bohr, one of the scientists working on the project, thought science belonged to the world and wanted to open up the research to everyone.
A laudable thought but in ? To the Germans and Japanese? Thomas focuses mainly on two participants to get differing POV: Colonel Tibbetts as he prepared the Bombing Group for the mission over Japan; and Officer Yokoyama in charge of the anti-aircraft guns on the hills surrounding Hiroshima.
But, apparently Hiroshima was home to several military industrial sites producing many weapons, although by this stage of the war raw materials were in such short supply they were barely operating. Hiroshima, was highly vulnerable to air attack. All a bomber need do was drop its load within the bowl to be almost certain of causing damage. Apart from a single kidney-shaped hill in the eastern sector of the city, about half a mile long and two hundred feet high, Hiroshima was uniformly exposed to the spreading energy that big bombs generate.
Structurally—like San Francisco in the destelllo and fire of —Hiroshima was built to burn. Ninety hiroshhima of its houses were made of wood. Large groups of dwellings were clustered together. The Japanese had rationalized the fall of the Marianas and other Pacific Japanese bases by saying it was a strategic withdrawal to lure the Americans closer to the Homeland where they could be more easily destroyed.
The dossiers represented the most thorough secret investigation until then carried out in the name of the U. I still remain a bit astonished at the naive faith everyone had in the bomb. They really had no idea dextello it would work and if it did, what the results might be.
How far from the center would radioactivity extend, what would be the effects of the blinding flash, were just a couple of the many questions they had. The extraordinary secrecy probably had as much to do with their fear the bomb might not work as it did that it would work.
Enola Gay: The Bombing of Hiroshima by Gordon Thomas
The United States, to this date, remains the d country ever to have used nuclear weapons in war. View all 4 comments. The facts speak for themselves: I couldn’t put this book down when I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it and when I got to the part where the bomb was dropped, my heart literally started beating faster and my mouth was dry.
Not all the parts of the book were quite that intense of course I felt like it picked up speed as it went but overall it’s a riveting history read and despite being about the atomic bomb, Hiroshima, and WWII, it isn’t overwhelmingly disturbing. There are so many el The facts speak for themselves: There are so many elements about the dropping of the atomic bomb that I had never given a single thought to before reading this, and I also really appreciated the greater WWII context that the book talks about.
Finally, I thought re did a pretty fair job of portraying a wide array of perspectives, including the Japanese one. A well balanced and interesting book about the creation of the atomic bomb and the use of it on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There is a lot of information about the secrecy surrounding the creation of the bombs and the training of the pilots, the thoughts and actions of the people involved, and a look at what was going on in Japan as well.
It is history but well written and full of enough human interest and anecdotes that it reads more like a novel. The problem for me was that I hiroshuma going to get to A hiroshija balanced and interesting book about the creation of the atomic bomb and the use of it on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The problem for me was that I wasn’t going to get to the end of the book without reading about dropping the bomb. I kept going slower and slower as the time approached.
I finally forced myself to finish it, but it was so painful. The United States killedpeople in one night of firebombing Tokyo. We killed approx 80, in the first eye blink of the atomic bomb explosion in Hiroshima and many died after that.
Hirosgima fact the bomb exploded directly over Shima Hospital instantly vaporizing the people in it. And there was not much of an expression of doubt or regret at the time, just a lot of hurrah and positive media blitz. It did end the war, so that is understandable to some extent.
The book presents the other side as well of course, you know like how many people would have died on both sides had we not used the bomb and the war continued, that sort of thing. I’m not making a case for either scenario, but the bombings were very difficult for me to read. Mission to Hiroshima immediately became one of my favorite books. It hit the perfect spot as a history book in terms of offering the right level of depth on a subject so as to avoid going too deep in the weeds or being too shallow and not addressing important matters.
The book hiroshi,a compelling from start to to finish and it was extremely hard to put down. Jul 01, Willa Frizzell rated it really liked it. This nonfiction explains what was happening in Japan as well as the US. Jul 17, Michael Gerald rated it it was amazing. With all the atrocities that Japan committed during the Second World War, it is galling for some Japanese lunatics to make Hiroshima as a shrine for peace.
Kapal ng mga mukha! For the record, Japan was THE aggressor of that terrible war. And their atrocities are also for the record: And Japan had no intention to surrender until the Soviet Union declared war deshello them and the US delivered the coup With all the atrocities that Japan committed during the Second World War, it is galling for some Japanese lunatics to make Hiroshima as a shrine for peace.
And Japan had no intention to surrender until the Soviet Union declared war on them and the US delivered the coup de grace of the atomic bombs. And the excuse that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were civilian areas? Those cities contained military installations. And there were almost no civilians in Japan at that time, as almost all were active in the war effort. So was the use of the Bombs to effect the surrender of Japan necessary and justified?
The Bombs ended the war and sl lives-both American and Japanese-that would have been lost in a longer, more brutal conflict that was Japan’s making.
Hiroshima de John Hersey Hiroshima HIROSHIMA
I read the authors Voyage of the Uiroshima a long time ago and really enjoyed it. So when I found this book I had expectations. And they were easily met. The authors take you along with Col. Tibbets and the rest of his squadron – through training, hellraising and more. The book reads like a novel even if hhiroshima is based on well documented facts. They also cover both sides of the story including the experiences of Hiroshima survivors.
