Did the U.S. HAVE to use the atomic bombs during the Second World War? How could they have used the atomic bombs differently? As weapons of a potential revolutionary nature – strategically speaking – much was still not understood about the atomic bombs by those who created them. Nor was there initial consensus on how to best use them during the war itself.
So what alternatives did the Allies consider, and what factors weighed heaviest in the decision for how, when and where the atomic bombs were eventually used?
This is a special audio mini documentary, aimed at exploring this issue from the Allied perspective during the Second World War for this very serious subject.
