On July 25 1945 President Truman ordered the military to drop two atomic bombs on Japan The United States warned Japan that they would face prompt and utter destruction unless Japan surrenders Japan refused On August 6 Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb named Little Boy over Hiroshima an important military base Japan still did not surrender On August 9 the second bomb named Fat Man was released on Nagasaki By the end of the year approximately 200000 people died from injuries and radiation from the atomic explosions Emperor Hirohito surrendered in September The bomb never should have been dropped on Japan There were alternatives to make Japan surrender other than the killing of innocent civilians The US could have invited Japanese officials to view the testing of the bomb at Los Alamos New Mexico After seeing the destructive power of the bomb the officials could make an informed decision Another reason that the US did not need to drop the bomb was that the US is already winning the war in Far East A naval blockade was interfering with Japans ability to import oil and other resources and its ability to produce weapons and supplies By the beginning of September Japans industries were basically starved through the blockades By continuing the blockade Japan will be forced to submit The warning given to Japan before Hiroshima was inadequate One flaw of the United States warning issued to Japan was their failure to inform of Russias possible invasion By the end of the war Soviet Union had rebuilt their army and was looking to gain land If Japan had been aware of the Soviets plan to invade then they would have known a loss is unavoidable With a weakened navy and air force it was almost impossible for Japan to win in a two front war against America and Soviet Union Another problem was that Japan wanted to surrender possibly as early as June 1945 However
