My research so far has brought many interesting revelations. The issue of the bombing on Japan is very complex, and requires lots of historical context and knowledge of situational phenomenon. One of the most interesting things in these new sources I have found are the perspectives of survivors of the attacks. They reveal a far more personal and real side of the debate. Anyway, here are some of the new sources I found while researching on Pioneer.
-this article introduces a moral dilemma with the dropping of the bomb, talking about the radiation left over and the efforts by the US to suppress knowledge of this radiation
-This article gives a detailed retelling of the events that occurred during the dropping of the bomb, and an analysis of arguments for and against the dropping of the bomb
-This article explores various reactions of survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, and what great effect these bombings had on the people living there.
Hey Matthew I found a couple of these articles very interesting. Its been over 70 years since the bombs were dropped and japan still feels its effect. Some survivors are still bitter about the attack but some knew it had to happen.
