Hiroshima and Nagasaki: The Atomic Bombings that Shook the World

Vivid storytelling brings World War II history to life and place readers in the shoes of the people who experienced the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. From the development of the bombs and the decision to use them to the moments they were dropped and the devastation they wrought, readers get a firsthand look at events that truly shook the world. Suspenseful, dramatic events unfold in chronological, interwoven stories from the different perspectives of people who experienced the events while they were happening. Narratives intertwine to create a breathless, "What's Next?" kind of read. Students gain a new perspective on historical figures as they learn about real people struggling to decide how best to act in a given moment.
