In this 14th episode of Through the Aftermath, Shawn and Jonathan tackle yet another somber topic with the bombings of Japan's Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII. To help learn more about this subject, our listener Charles sent us along some great references for further reading:
- Hiroshima: Historians Reassesses by Gar Alperovitz
- Prompt & Utter Destruction: Truman and the Use of the Bombs Against Japan by J. Samuel Walker
- Hiroshima by John Hershey
Also be sure to check out the Wikipedia page that gives a general overview of what happened.
Next episode will be another email show, as we need to purge the steady stream of feedback from the listeners!
- Fallout 3 Mod of the Show: Turn your F3 weapons into classic Fallout weapons!
- Video of the show: BBC's documentary on dropping the bomb over Hiroshima
- Also... RUSH!
Sound bites were from Harry Truman's speeches during and after the bombing occurred.
