characters ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Gar AlperovitzThe Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb

characters The Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb 107 Event that was largely responsible for the evolution of post World War II American politics and culture. This book contains all the sources save those lost or deliberately destroyed on the choice to drop the atomic weapons on Japan at the end of World War Two I am enjoying the work very much It is divided into two parts the historical evidence of the choice to drop the bomb and the creation of the official tale of inevitability the popular story that it was either the choice to drop the bombs or the certain slaughter of millions of American troops on the beaches of Japan Both sections are chilling The text is full of thorough documentation and filled with astounding footnotes that document the search for documents and records that have gone missing or have been destroyed One of the most fascinating elements in the first third of the book is the various messages from the Japanese government that were sent to the US government in the waning months of the war Many of these messages were only acknowledged and officially declassified and released by the US government in the 1990 s and they are proof that the Japanese leadership were seeking clarification of the US demands of unconditional surrender It was clear months before the Trinity Test that the United States could have shortened the war by assuring the Japanese government of the security of the Emperor The reasons the American government chose not to do so are various and shocking and they included pressure from the military leadership of the Manhattan Project that wished to use their monstrous creation diplomats who wished to use the bomb as a trump card in the first poker rounds of the Cold War with the Soviets and the reprehensible doctrine of total war The first third of the book reveals many important facts Operation Olympic and Operation Coronet the planned invasions of Japan by ground troops were only plans and were not being talked of as serious possibilities by the Secretary of War the Secretary of State or the military leadership No one seems to have expected to invade Japan and this was not a foregone conclusion The evidence on this point is clear and important Another point is that the demand for unconditional surrender was controversial Many American media outlets including Time and Life magazines and religious periodicals such as The Christian Century uestioned the policy pointed out that it would certainly prolong the war and cause needless death and clear terms for peace ought to be offered to Japan This argument has been so utterly lost and forgotten in so many contemporary discussions of the choice to drop the atomic weapons it is uite refreshing to see them reintroduced to the subject once again Once Truman and his advisors made the choice not to negotiate terms or even to communicate with the Japanese government the military leadership objected to the use of the Bomb This is another vital bit of evidence about the choice to use the weapons that ought to be better known in contemporary discussion Eisenhower Leahy Nimitz MacArthur and even Curtis LeMay were all very clear to the government that the atomic weapons were not a military necessity Leahy objected to the use of the Bomb in the strongest terms prophesying that sins of such wickedness did not go unpunished and insisting that wars must not be fought against women and children Curtis LeMay the heir of Sherman even went as far as to deny the Bomb had anything to do with the surrender of Japan arguing publicly that it was impossible for the Japanese to continue the struggle in any case and that his devastating firebomb strategy had already defeated Japan In conclusion although I have yet to dive into part two this history seems indispensable to me I highly recommend it
