The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki happened during World War II. World War II was coming to a close and the Japanese were holding on to what little land they had claimed. Meanwhile allowing their people and the people in the surrounding countries to starve. This is because the Japanese would not have surrendered without the bombings, there would have been more Asian civilian casualties had the war gone on, and finally that the Invasion of Japan would have resulted in more American casualties. The evidence clearly shown through historical documents will justify that the bombings were catastrophic and caused many civilian casualties, but was necessary to end World War II.
It inspired people to move on from the war and develop our country. His speech inspired people of all genders and races to forgive and forget. Unfortunately, Lincoln never actually got to see the full effects of his speech because he was assassinated a little over a month after giving this speech.

My grandmother lived Downtown where she attended Courtenay Elementary School and Charleston High, but she did not attend college due to the birth of her first child, my aunt, at age eighteen. My paternal grandfather’s side of the family came to America in 1917, through Ellis Island, from Greece.

What make me regret is that I did not go to the Veterans Day Ceremony because I had class at 11am on Tuesday. I know that the United State annually celebrate the Veterans Day every November to honor and praise veterans of all service branches for the sacrifices each have made for their country.

Though I was excited to get back on the mainland, that excitement was abated by a twinge of anxiety as I thought about what I was going to say. I didn’t have much information to lean on. I knew little
Name: Course Instructor: Class: Date: Critical Book Review: Prompt and Utter Destruction Introduction Within weeks, word on the US dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki began to spread that the main reason behind the bombs was to save the lives of Americans (Bernard). It was put that hundreds of thousands of American military causalities were saved through the bombings. Lives that would have been lost through invasion of Japan were saved, in addition to maintaining that both military and civilian Japanese causalities were prevented through the atomic bombs that contributed to the end of the war (Norris). However, was the word true? In the Prompt & Utter Destruction: Truman and the Use of Atomic Bombs Against Japan, historian J. Samuel Walker provides an
