Hiroshima Bombing 75th Anniversary - August 6, 2020
After Japanese leaders flatly rejected the Potsdam Declaration, President Truman authorized use of the atomic bomb anytime after August 3, 1945. On the clear morning of August 6, the first atomic bomb, nicknamed Little Boy, was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. Leveling over 60 percent of the city, 70,000 residents died instantaneously in a searing flash of heat. Three days later, on August 9, a second bomb, Fat Man, was dropped on Nagasaki. Over 20,000 people died instantly. In the successive weeks, thousands more Japanese died from the after effects of the radiation exposure of the blast.
The plane carrying the bomb, Enola Gay, flew high over the city and released its payload, a nuclear fission bomb named Little Boy. After hitting the ground, the bomb sustained a nuclear fission reaction, releasing huge amounts of energy into the immediate area, instantly vaporizing houses, humans, and all that stood in its path.
The pilots of the Enola Gay described seeing blinding light fill their aircraft and the entirety of the ground below being obscured by the billowing mushroom-shaped column of smoke. Reportedly, the co-pilot could taste the fission as lead in the air.
The area of the destruction caused by the bomb was about 4 square miles. In this area an estimated 48,000 buildings were completely destroyed. More damage occurred from the fires generated by the explosion over the next several days. The ethicality of such a devastating attack on Japanese civilians by the United States military has been debated over and over. However, what is clear is that thousands of U.S. Solders did not have to die fighting house to house throughout Japan in order to win final victory in World War 2 and removing the militaristic government in power.
"We have proclaimed to the world our determination to die freemen, rather than to live slaves."|
