A Place in History looks at some of the most famous and iconic sites in modern history. The books in this series also explore the wider history of the particular era or event with which each site is linked, be it World War II, the Cold War, the Holocaust, or the War on Terror. Hiroshima tells the story of how the Japanese port city of Hiroshima came to be the target of the world's first nuclear attack. It describes the events leading up to that moment, including Japanese imperialism and Japan's confrontation with the United States in the Pacific. The book also looks at the development of the atomic bomb, the nuclear arms race that followed, and Hiroshima's post-war rebirth as a "peace memorial city." Book jacket.
