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

Some of the internal scenes aboard the B-29 were filmed in the only remaining example that is still capable of flight. That one belonged to the Confederate Air Force, which is now called the Commemorative Air Force due to political correctness. See more »

Goofs

General Groves General's rank is improperly shown. Even a 2 star General's stars are worn centered between the shoulder and the button, not out toward the sewed-down portion or often seen on that portion itself. See more »

A Very Candid Look at the Monumental Decision
6 October 2003 | by (Lima, OH) – See all my reviews

First of all, it would have been absolutely impossible to find a actor who looked and acted more like Harry Truman that Kenneth Walsh. Second, the most fascinating aspects of this movie relate to what was happening in Japan at the closing of the war. The idea that a majority of the military officers would have rather seen Japan cease to exist as a people than to surrender really provides some counter-balance to all of the recent revisionist history that claims that Japan was in the process of surrendering and that the U.S. used the A-bomb simply to avenge earlier Japanese treachery. "Hiroshima" is historical film-making at its best.
