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

A Perfect 10
21 April 2003 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

Perhaps the best made-for-tv movie I've ever seen. Historically correct and blended with real footage and interviews of actual participants I was spell-bound for three hours. The haunting musical score only added to the emotional story telling of this significant historical event.
