This book examines why, how, and when the decision was made to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima during World War II in a day-by-day account of the activities that took place in the two years leading up to the bombing. The decision was controversial in the spring of 1945 when President Harry Truman entered office, and it continues to generate debate. Opening and closing sections provide summaries of related events prior to and following the bombing. A helpful chart provides names of leading participants and groups that contributed to the final decision.
