why japan ended up bombed
Why Japan Ended up Bombed
  • The reason that the US bombed Japan was because on July 26, President Truman issued the Potsdam Declaration, calling for Japan’s unconditional surrender and listed peace terms, Japan was warned of the consequences if refused to surrender, and they still refused to surrender causing the first bomb “Little Boy” to be dropped.
  • Some 70,000 people died from heat, radiation effects at Hiroshima.
  • This included 20 American prisoners
  • A few days after the blast people noticed radiation sickness in the survivors.
  • Then the death rate began to climb.
  • Within the year of the bombing the death toll was about 200,000.
  • Today there are as many as 400,000 survivors from the bombings.
  • Most survivors keep their history secret with fear of rejection from others.
  • I think that the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a very big part of American history.
  • It ended one of the biggest wars of all time.
  • It killed many innocent people to help save more American lives.
