"The Nuclear Age dawned in August 1945 when the US Air Force brought its terrible packages of destruction to the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those bombs put the Earth ever afterwards on the brink of self-annihilation. But it had to happen: the comic bomb was dropped to save one million lives and end the war. It was the only military and political option. Or was it? What if the dropping of those first bombs was not so unavoidable as we have always been led to believe? What of the Second World War could have been brought to an end without ushering in the Nuclear Age? This is the subject of this exceedingly powerful and important book." -- From the front fold over panel blurb. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
