Paperback
When the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in August 1945, killing 100,000 men, women and children, a new era in human history opened. This book presents an chilling account of six men and women who struggled to cope with catastrophe and with often crippling disease.
“And here is where compassion lies. All the brutality and horror of war down to the most base level. On par with Heart of Darkness. I was 15 when I read it, and it changed my life.” –Janine di Giovanni, author
