The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima a military base That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid insofar as possible the killing of civilians But that attack is only a warning of things to come If Japan does not surrender bombs will have to be dropped on her war industries and unfortunately thousands of civilian lives will be lost I urge Japanese civilians to leave industrial cities immediately and save themselves from destruction Harry S Truman appears to be perfectly confident in his radio address to the world on August 9th 1945 Confident that he has made the right decision in dropping the first weapon of mass destruction and thus hurling the world into an atomic age It is however the poise of this strong leader that makes it unclear to many just how agonizing and belabored his decision was While at the time to the public the dropping of the atomic bomb was perfectly justified by the horrors of World War II However looking at this subject in retrospect the atomic bomb has been lowered from its savior status and in some peoples eyes ranks among the worlds most horrible crimes of war This debate has raged between historians for years yet research and articles written in recent years how show the atomic bomb not only ended the war is a timely fashion but also holistically saved both the US and Japan much distress and agony Nevertheless the net worth of Trumans decision to drop the Worlds first atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki well out weighed any fallout that might be attributed to their destruction In the last days of World War II victory for the allies seemed inevitable It was only a matter of time until the Japanese would surrender and the world would be safe again However despite this confidence an invasion of Japan would prove to be a costly event
