This autobiography of Paul W. Tibbets portrays the pilot and commanding officer of the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. “It is the story of a quietly efficient man who, with great skill and unquestioning faith in the judgment of those who led his country and its allies, brought a hasty end to the most terrible of all wars” (introduction). Tibbets tells the story of his entire life in order to show the reader his typically American background and to dispel any myths that he was overcome with guilt and mental anguish after dropping the bomb.
