    Today most people believe that the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 forced the surrender of Japan and spared the millions of deaths that would have resulted from a continued war. Examining the bombings, the science and politics leading up to them and, through harrowing personal testimonies, the experiences of some of the survivors, Paul Ham concludes that, despite the American claim that they had opted for 'the least abhorrent choice', viable alternatives were never considered.
