      Smoke rises aro feet above Hiroshima after the first atomic bomb was dropped on the city by the United States on August 6, 'Little Boy,' the first nuclear weapon used in war.   Nothing in Bob Woodward’s sober and grainy new book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” is especially surprising. This is a White House that has leaked from Day 1. .

      Washington, D.C., August 4, – To mark the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August , the National Security Archive is updating and reposting one of its most popular e-books of the past 25 years. While U.S. leaders hailed the bombings at the time and for many years afterwards for bringing the Pacific war to an end and saving untold . When you think about everything the people in Bomb: The Race to Build—And Steal—The World's Most Dangerous Weapon had to worry about during World War II, fear was a pretty big motivator. Unless you were Norwegian, in which case you strapped on your skis and took on the Nazis with a small force of highly trained operatives, apparently.

      A full-scale nuclear war would destroy both the world and humanity as we know it. Dr. Masao Tomonaga Surviving the nuclear bomb at Nagasaki 75 years only to go on living with the fear .   It was a momentous turn on the Pacific battleground of World War II, yet one that would be largely eclipsed in the history books by the atomic bombs dropped on .
