The Manhattan Project Surrender? On the 8th of May , Nazi German signed its instrument of surrender ending the war in the European theatre. However, the Pacific front remained hostile. After many years of bombing attacks on Japanese cities, the Allies were preparing for a invasion of the Japanese mainland.
Hiroshima Hiroshima was a very strategic and important city during the war. It was the location of multiple military camps. It was also a minor supply and logistics base for the Japanese military. The city was used as a communications centre, a storage location and an assembly area for soldiers. Hiroshima was deliberately left alone by prior American bombings so the damage from the nuclear weapon could be measured. Hiroshima had a population of around , people just prior to the dropping of the bomb.
Planned flight paths for the missions Three B29s took off from Tinian with the Enola Gay carrying the weapon and The Great Artiste carrying instrumentation for blast measurement and post-explosion investigation, and Necessary Evil carrying photography equipment. At am, Japanese radar gave warning of approaching American aircraft. An alert was given but because of the small size of the party, the air raid warning was lifted. Due to dwindling supplies and in an attempt to conserve fuel and aircraft, the Japanese decided not to intercept small formations.
Also, it was believed that the three planes were performing reconnaissance because earlier at am, another American B29 had flown over, the aircraft Straight Flush was a weather observation aircraft that then sent a morse code message to Enola Gay announcing that the weather was good at Hiroshima for the bombing. At around am, the safeties were removed from the bomb. At am, The pilot, Colonel Tibbets started his bombing run and six minutes later, the Little Boy uranium bomb was dropped upon Hiroshima.
Model of the Little Boy bomb Ground level photo taken 7km away after the Hiroshima explosion The bomb utilized about 64kg of uranium and exploded m above the city. The bomb was aimed at Aioi Bridge but due to crosswinds, missed and instead hit the Shima Surgical Clinic.
The blast was equivalent to 16 kilotons of TNT. The immediate effects of the bomb killed around 70, people and another 70, were injured. It is said that the total effects from the bombing ranges from 90, to , people by the end of caused by burns and radiation aftereffects. Also, it is known that at least 11 prisoners of war died in the bombing. Nagasaki The city of Nagasaki was one of the largest ports in southern Japan and was a hub for industrial activity such as production of equipment, ammunition, ships and other materials.
Nagasaki was very susceptible to the danger to the fire, an even greater amount of buildings were build using wood. The timing of the bombing was allocated to the pilot of the first bombing, Colonel Tibbets. Unlike the first mission, rehearsals were conducted off Tinian using Bockscar as the drop plane. The second bombing had striking similarities to the first. The original outlooks looked good at both Kokura and Nagasaki.
The second bombing also followed the same route to Japan as the first mission. However, this time, Big Stink failed to show up at the rendezvous at Iwo Jima on time so the two other planes, which were left 30 minutes behind schedule, flew towards Japan without Big Stink.
The planes made three fly overs, the whole time, the cloud cover remained. Fuel started running low to return to Iwo Jima, the crew flew towards the alternate location; Nagasaki. Another similarity to the first bombing was that at am an air raid alert sounded in Nagasaki, but again it was later lifted at The Fat Man bombed contained a core of 6. The total deaths at the end of reached around 80, people.
Up to 13 POWs may have also died from the bombing. Emperor Hirohito told foreign minister Togo that Japan would surrender if they did not kill or imprison the Emperor. The Allies agreed to this condition and on the 14th of August , Hirohito announced the surrender of the Japanese.
The second world war had now concluded. Should we continue to fight, not only would it result in an ultimate collapse and obliteration of the Japanese nation, but also it would lead to the total extinction of human civilization. Such being the case, how are We to save the millions of Our subjects, or to atone Ourselves before the hallowed spirits of Our Imperial Ancestors?
This is the reason why We have ordered the acceptance of the provisions of the Joint Declaration of the Powers. In Hogan, Michael J.. Hiroshima in History and Memory. Pg 3. Reischauer, Edwin O.
