The first atomic explosion took place at 5.29am on July 16, 1945 in the New Mexico desert. A plutonium bomb, codenamed Trinity, it created an explosion with the equivalent power of 18,000 tons of TNT.-- Hiroshima and Nagasaki: An Illustrated History, Anthology, and Guide by Magnus Bartlett and Robert O'Connor, published by Odyssey Books & Maps.
This book is not a typical history book or a tourist guide book. The authors use art reproductions, photos, illustrations, unusual graphics, maps, historical documents, essays, and quotes to prove a "history, anthology, and guide" for the twin cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, from their trading days in ancient Japan through the WWII bombings, including a guide for today's visitors.
