This web page presents the text of a short memo written in 1945 by U.S. Undersecretary of the Navy Ralph Bard arguing that the Japanese should be warned prior to an atomic attack. He also suggests that the Japanese were willing, and actively seeking, to surrender. He states that our "great humanitarian nation and the fair play attitude of our people" suggest that a warning should be given. The page also includes background information and an explanation of terminology.
