Documentary filmmaker and published historian Craig Corrie set about reconstructing precisely what happened on those few days in August 1945 which brought World War Two to an end. He interviewed elderly survivors of the Nagasaki blast, and descendants of victims, and he has stitched together those interviews with eyewitness testimony, diaries and journals, and official documents -- Japanese, American, British and Australian. He provides a gripping, as-it-happened account of the decision-making, the confusion, the politicking, the denials, and, above all, the devastation and disorientation. We follow ordinary Japanese in the hours after the blast: a doctor and nurses heroically save many lives; a pair of incredibly lucky unlucky fellows who survived the Hiroshima blast only to return to their hometown in time to survive a second atomic bomb; and many more who are dazed, whose families are destroyed, whose sense of belonging is decimated. Within a few days of the blast, 80,000 Nagasaki residents were dead, half of them instantly at the moment the bomb struck. Their loss and their pain, and that of those who survived, are honoured at last in this unprecedented book.
