Description
Keen to learn but short on time? Get to grips with the events surrounding the bombing of Hiroshima in next to no time with this concise guide.50Minutes.com provides a clear and engaging analysis of the bombing of Hiroshima. In August 1945, the Second World War was over in Europe, but in the East the Japanese army refused to surrender. Fearing a bloody battle if they invaded Japan, the US military and political leaders decided to use their recently developed nuclear weapons to force Japan's hand. These bombs proved more devastating than anyone could have imagined, and their use played a significant part in the development of the Cold War. In just 50 minutes you will:- Learn about the battles fought as part of the Pacific Campaign from 1941 to 1945- Analyse the events leading up to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the factors that motivated this decision- Understand the devastating effects of these bombings and their human and material consequences.
