Pika-Don A True Story

£5.99

Product description

This book looks at the events prior to, during, and after the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima in August 1945 through the eyes of several people who were there. The main viewpoint is that of Pedro Arrupe, a Spanish-born Jesuit priest who was living in Hiroshima at the time of the bombing. Other viewpoints include Japanese soldiers facing the Soviets in Manchuria, US Navy personnel as their ship is being attacked by kamikaze pilots and an RAF Group Captain who would later receive a peerage for his work to a charity that still bears his name. The book is in good condition, with minor signs of wear and discolouration of the spine and part of the back cover from sunlight exposure. The author has signed the book on the first page, with the rest of pages clean and the binding strong.
