Storyline

Harry Truman, the successor to the Oval Office after the late President Rosevelt, is plagued with the decisions of war that could save or cost a thousand lives. He is then confronted with the nuclear weapons project, which he approves. As tension ensues (although it is difficult to get into this because most know the end) Truman must make the devastating desicion to use the bomb of all bombs. After some delivering japanese performances, Truman must force suffering on the japanese people again in order to end the war. Written by kloqwerk

Trivia

While directing, Roger Spottiswoode tried to be even-handed in the portrayal of the Japanese military leaders, and it was the Japanese co-director who would keep coming back and saying "You don't really understand; they were much more intransigent than that." Some of the top military men over there had a pretty good idea of the resources required for the bomb, and didn't believe anyone could sustain the attacks. See more »

Goofs

President Truman is shown returning to the USA on the USS Augusta. He is shown on of a naval vessel flying a "jack'" This is a flag made up of just the canton portion of a flag, or solely the blue field with only stars. It is Navy policy that this flag is flown from 0800 to sunset on ships that are moored or in port. Once underway, as President Truman was shown, it should have been exchanged for the standard National ensign, the U.S. Flag. See more »

Hell on earth.
11 November 2003 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Excellent. Recounted are the events leading to President Truman's decision to drop an A-bomb on Hiroshima in 1945 and its aftermath. Filmed primarily in "tinted" black and white with the weaving of newsreel and stock footage. Witness testimonials put the explanation point on the haunting depictions. Kenneth Welsh is uncanny in his portrayal of Truman. Other stars of note are: Richard Masur, Leon Pownall, Wesley Addy, Daisaku Akino, David Gow, Ken Jenkins and Naohiko Umewaka. A must for WWII and history buffs.
