On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atom bomb ever dropped on a city. This book, John Hersey's journalistic masterpiece, tells what happened on that day. Told through the memories of survivors, this timeless, powerful and compassionate document has become a classic "that stirs the conscience of humanity" ( The New York Times ).

Almost four decades after the original publication of this celebrated book, John Hersey went back to Hiroshima in search of the people whose stories he had told.nbsp;nbsp;His account of what he discovered about them is now the eloquent and moving final chapter of Hiroshima .

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.
