    A journalistic masterpiece. John Hersey transports us back to the streets of Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945 - the day the city was destroyed by the first atomic bomb. Told through the memories of six survivors, Hiroshima is a timeless, powerful classic that will awaken your heart and your compassion. In this new edition, Hersey returns to Hiroshima to find the survivors - and to tell their fates in an eloquent and moving final chapter.

    On July 16, 1945, the world's first atomic bomb was secretly detonated in the New Mexico desert. The U.S. began development of the bomb in 1939, and in 1942, the atomic program was placed under U.S. Army control and codenamed the "Manhattan Project." By the time of the "Trinity" test in July of 1945, over two billion dollars had been spent. The detonation of the deadly new weapon was not made public until three weeks later, when to two others like it devastated the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    In 1943, the American Major Victor Joppolo finds himself the civil affairs officer - the mayor - of a small town in Sicily. Equipped with the rulebook, How to Bring American Democracy to Liberated Territories, he sets about bringing choices to a people whose every recent activity had been dictated. Asking them what the town needs most, he is answered: give the town back its spirit - a bell to replace the 700-year-old one that was melted down for bullets.

    “Bluefish,” writes the author, are “animated chopping machines. They will eat anything alive. They have stripped the toes from surfers in Florida. They can’t not eat.” Hersey weaves fact and legend around his subject, engaging the reader with juicy details of ocean life, philosophy, natural history, and the crises into which man has let his environment slide.
