Towards the end of World War II, the United States decided to use the atomic bomb against Japan to force Japan to surrender as quickly as possible. The first atomic bomb was completed and tested in New Mexico on July 16th 1945, and on July 25th the order to drop the atomic bomb was issued by the U.S. President at that time, Harry S. Truman. On August 6th 1945 history was changed forever when the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. For the first time, an atomic bomb had been fired on a military target. Three days later, a second bomb was released on Nagasaki.
On August 6th 1945, at 8:15
Three days later, on August 9th, at exactly 11:02 AM, a second bomb, nicknamed “Fat Man”, was dropped in the industrial section of the city of Nagasaki. “Fat Man” killed 39,000 people and injured 25,000 more.
Even though there were more casualties in Hiroshima, “Fat Man” proved to be more powerful, because the destruction radius was greater in Nagasaki (14,000 feet) than in Hiroshima (12,000 feet).
The injuries inflicted on the people resulting from the atomic explosions were: bums from flash radiation of heat and from fires ignited by the explosion, direct physical effects of the blast pressure, mechanical injuries from flying debris or the collapse of buildings, and radiation effects. Most of the casualties resulted from mechanical injuries.
In the years since the bombings, some people have said that dropping the atomic bombs ended World War Two, while others have said that it was an unnecessary attack and a horrific act that should never be repeated. Every year on August 6th in Hiroshima, people float lanterns filled with prayers and messages of peace in remembrance of the tens of thousands who died in those terrible events.
