This book retells the story of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima with the extensive use of first-hand sources. The authors present the results of 50 hours of interviewing with Col. Paul Tibbets, who flew the historic mission, as well as interviews with each surviving crewmember. They also explore the Japanese perspective of the bombing, using interviews with Hiroshima’s anti-aircraft officer, mayor, commanding general, and leading doctor. The book is primarily the story of Paul Tibbets, his years of preparation, his day of glory, and his ensuing demonization, and that of the Japanese who survived the blast. The book also examines the military aspects of the Enola Gay mission.
