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.

By: Ronan Uy ABSTRACT Warfare has been through many periods of technology, in spite of this a single aspect remains constant: death. Though there were numerous deadly weapons utilized in war, the deadliest of them all is the atomic bomb.
Albert Einstein was the most influential person in the making of the atomic bomb. His theory of relativity E=MC2 and other theories he made were the most influential in discoveries scientists made about energy and its forms. Albert Einstein left behind the biggest legacy ever. Albert Einstein was born March, 14th 1879 in Ulm Württemberg Germany.
The world’s first atomic bombs to ever be used, left two cities in despair, and changed the lives of its inhabitants forever. The United States of America dropped an atomic bomb named “Little Boy” on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. Another bomb named “Fat Man” was dropped on the city of Nagasaki, three days later.
