There have been seven editions since this book's first publication in 1965. Referring to the diaries and records left by the then statesmen and the people concerned, the author offers evidence to support the argument that A-bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki not in order to end the war, but for the U.S. to predominate over the U.S.S.R. after World War II.
