Shockwave : The Countdown to Hiroshima, Paperback

Shockwave : The Countdown to Hiroshima Paperback



August 6th, 1945, 9.15 a.m. Six miles above Hiroshima, the bombardier of the Enola Gay releases an atomic bomb into the freezing skies.

Seconds later, the city is obliterated in a single, monumental blast of fire.

The destruction is immediate and catastrophic, as if a small sun had suddenly exploded.

Tens of thousands of people are instantly annihilated.

In that moment, the world will never be the same again.

Combining a rich array of interviews with gripping storytelling, Stephen Walker's Shockwave presents an extraordinary and unforgettably moving portrait of one of the defining events of the twentieth century.
