RUIN FROM THE AIR: The Atomic Mission to Hiroshima


The holocaust which marked the dawn of the atomic age … The nuclear destruction of the city of Hiroshima is the most significant single event in the whole of recorded history. The full story of this literally epoch-making act of war is told in Ruin from the air.

This book deals with what is probably the most controversial decision in the history of warfare. It starts slowly but don’t let that deter you from reading. By the time the account of the actual flight is reached, this had developed into one of the most compelling books I have read in a long time. Even knowing the outcome, I was riveted by the masterful storytelling of this major world event. The sectioning of the book also made complete sense on reaching the conclusion. A must read for the WWII enthusiast
