Meet the authors and discuss the events that took place during this historical time period

Jacob Beser the only man to fly as a crew member on the strike aircraft for the Hiroshima and Nagasaki missions said: "I believe what we did in 1945 was right. I have no remorse and will never apologize to anyone. But the nations of the world need to find a way to get along with each other because we now have the wherewithal to destroy everything. This is the message I have tried to relay all these years."

This book is compiled from unpublished documents from the personal archive of Jacob Beser . This book is filled with historical data about the war in the Pacific and events surrounding the bombings, It also debunks a number of myths that have followed those grim days

Many people today are ignorant of what led up to and what happened during World War II when the Imperial Japanese Army behaved in a manner that seems almost unimaginable today. During the years from 1931 to 1945, it was responsible for some of the most horrible atrocities the world has ever seen. Few of the younger generation Japanese or Americans are neither able to identify the incidents nor those guilty of the decisions that brought death to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, in Asia and on the islands of the Pacific. Neither are they aware of the magnitude of the loss of life that occurred during the fierce battles that took place during the war. This kind of information is seldom mentioned in history books today.

This book is a historical essay summarizing events starting in the 1850s that led up to the war with Japan. It includes the use of the atomic weapons and discusses the necessity for their use and the moral issues involved. It also discusses the Tokyo war crime trials and the emergence of a post-war new Japan.
