1945 ... what ended the war!

... from Fall 1945 'Life' magazine. More facts coming out about the Atomic Bomb.

I have long maintained that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the sacrificial cities that prevented a nuclear, apocalyptic World War Three. Without this firsthand knowledge, without this horrible experience; using these weapons in a general war would have been inevitable.

One thing that interested me to learn, was that Japanese physicists were up to speed with the rest of the world on atomic theory, and they were not slack; while Hiroshima was still smoldering their investigators were sampling and measuring and figuring out what had happened and how, so shrewdly and accurately that the Occupation authorities - looking over their shoulders at the listening Reds - told them to shut the hеll up!
