Description

On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atom bomb ever dropped on a city. This book, John Hersey's journalistic masterpiece, tells what happened on that day. Told through the memories of survivors, this timeless, powerful and compassionate document has become a classic "that stirs the conscience of humanity" (The New York Times). 

Almost four decades after the original publication of this celebrated book, John Hersey went back to Hiroshima in search of the people whose stories he had told. His account of what he discovered about them is now the eloquent and moving final chapter of Hiroshima.

Must read book

I don't recall ever learning too much about Hiroshima in school at all. To hear these first hand accounts of people that went through this horrible event is heart wrenching. I feel this book should be read by everyone at any age to fully comprehend what happened to all those innocent, helpless people and to understand the ramifications of this type of warfare.

There are better accounts

NAGASAKI by Susan Southard is a far better account of all aspects of the immediate consequence and long term aftermath of the bombing. Hiroshima feels somewhat empty, by comparison. Actually, I was quite bored and ceased reading by the final chapters.

Is there any reader better than George Guidall?

I don’t think so. There are those that are different-but no one better. And SIMPLY PERFECT for this material. An astonishing read. Thank you George.

This can not happen again

I understand why John Hersey’s book created such a stir when it was first published. The notion that the dean of thousands was necessary to prevent more deaths by invasion is certainly questioned.as gospel by the American people. I thin on this deaths and how America alone has seen over 160,000 people die by the corona virus under incompetent leadership.
