This book is a collection of poems, photographs, essays, and memoirs by survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It explores the consequences of nuclear warfare, and describes the effects on its victims in gruesome detail. Arguments justifying the decision to drop the atomic bomb are made; however, illustrations of the terror experienced by the victims raise questions about the humaneness of that decision. Parents recount the losses of their children, husbands and wives tell of losing their spouses, and others describe their pain and suffering from exposure to the radiation that still affects them today.
