Though the consequences were immense, and many lives were lost, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were necessary in securing international peace, and an end to a war between Japan and
the bomb’s code name was “Little Boy”. Three days later, on August 9th, 1945, America dropped another bomb on Nagasaki with the code name “Fat Man”. As many as 200,000 deaths were caused by “Little Boy” alone and many people would die of radiation for years to come. The dropping of the Atom bomb on Hiroshima is an extremely debatable issue with no right or wrong answer. In this essay I will describe both sides to the argument then conclude using my final opinion on whether I am for or against the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima.

But as a regard to the multiple trials that took place in New Mexico, what came of it was that President Truman became aware of what massive casualties would come from dropping those bombs. President Truman stated in document A that “he regarded the bomb as a military weapon and never had any doubts that it should be used.” Looking back now, Truman knew what could come from the dropping but yet he still did and ending up picking a location where the biggest casualty could come from. The atomic bombs should have only been reserved for a last resort situation, what should have happened was Admiral Leahy’s idea.

He concentrated on maintaining world peace and watched with pleasure the development of his "atoms for peace" program. Eisenhower made his "atoms for peace" speech on December 8, 1953. The speech talked about the nuclear bomb race between the United States and the Soviet Union, the United States already dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945, ending war between the US and Japan, and also in the after years of World War II the US tested even stronger bombs. In 1949 the Soviet Union achieved its own nuclear capacity, then both nations raced to create a more powerful bomb. The United States did so in 1952 making a very powerful "hydrogen bomb," a fews days after Eisenhower was elected.
Before I started playing War Thunder I thought the USA had the best aircraft. I found this not to be true for the start of world war 2. I was flying my P-26-34 in a realistic battle. I had just encountered my first enemy of the battle. My plane, the P-26, had only two guns that were prone to jamming before killing enemies.
On a historic August day at the tail end of World War 2 a 20,000-ton force was dropped on two Japanese cities known as the atomic bomb and resulting in 160,000 causalities, substantial destruction, and an agreement to an unconditional surrender that ended the war. If the facts are properly presented it is very clear that there was no alternative to dropping the atomic bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima that could have come close to achieving the success it did for our country and the allied nations. Our leaders are intelligent and they knew the key to strong and successful future for our country was to be proactive and not think of only ending the war but demonstrating to the world that we are the force to be reckoned with and will not back down in the face of our adversaries. Our own valiant president Truman had a multitude of genius reasons for dropping that atomic bomb and I for one am going to support the brave decisions of our leaders and explain
Although the nuclear bomb was completed, it lacked a means to transport it. Thus, a program named Silverplate, was created in order to provide a means of transport. Under the Silverplate program, batches of improved B-29 bombers were produced specifically designed to carry and use atomic ordinance. The B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, which dropped the Little Boy nuclear bomb at Hiroshima was produced under the Silverplate program alongside fifteen other bombers between February and June 1945. The B-29 Bomber responsible for the Hiroshima bombing received its name on August 5, 1945 by Lt. Col Paul W. Tibbets.
There are two different wars that both took place during the 1940s. The wars are different because one was the battle between the Americans and the British, and the other was the Japanese giving a surprise attack in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Back then, there were many reasons why our country was involved in fighting their lives in those wars or any other war; one reason could be that the people in Japan were being treated like outcasts. Other reasons might be that there were unfair laws, nobody had rights to do whatever they wanted, or the main reason could be that they did not get along very well and they did not trust each other. They might have thought that they couldn 't work together to form a better economy for the future of our world or for their family and they used to give up really easily and acted like quitters.
The United States had been already attacking Japan from the air from B-29
