[color=Blue]Nagasaki: The Horror & Legacy of Fat Man - the World's First Plutonium Bomb[/color]
The Horror & Legacy of Fat Man. The World's First Plutonium Bomb.
On 8 August 1945, America dropped its second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, three days after the bomb on Hiroshima. The city was a veritable apocalyptic vision, devastated by this new type of weapon whose repercussions were yet to be discovered.
This second bomb marked the end of the War for Japan. The memories of survivors, both Japanese civilians and Western POWs, are even more moving than the images themselves, as they relate the morbid aftermath, the road from war to peace, the American occupation, the lost Nipponese honour, and the segregation that still effects fallout victims today.
