I am somewhat conflicted regarding Hiroshima and the use of the atomic bomb in this first (and only) instance to date.
This book is essential.

This is a great book that puts six people's accounts in order from the time of the bomb exploding to everything that happens afterwards. Great read and only about 220 pages.
