As the 50th anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki draw near, the debate over their propriety intensifies. Some argue that Japan was already defeated--that the bombings, especially of Nagasaki, were not necessary. This book profiles the two cities and their people, before and after those fateful days. 400 photos.
