An excellent historical account of the alternative to the use of atomic weapons to end the war with Japan. Those critical of the decision made by President Truman to "drop the bombs" need to read this book. For those looking for evidence that overwhelmingly supports the decision, here it is. The alternative would have been worse - the invasion of Japan.
