Film of the A-bombed cities taken by the Japanese after the bombings.
7 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Graphic pictures of the effects of the A bombs on people and buildings.

I showed this film when I taught US History in High School. The students were shocked, to say the least. They viewed it as part of the preparation for a debate on the need for using A bombs to end the Pacific war with Japan.

When we dealt with the Cold War, the students had a better understanding of what a weapon a thousand times more powerful than the Hiroshima blast could do.

A must-view for anyone dealing with the question of using the bombs on Japan.

A must-view for anyone dealing with the question of nuclear weapons.
