From the Foreword by Barbara Reynolds of the Hiroshima World Friendship Center:
". . . this comic book was not written as entertainment but out of the author's desperate need to communicate to others what had happened, so that those of us who have never known war might understand-- and learn. It was not written for Americans, although we, of all people, most need to know about the atomic bomb and its effects."

"Just because human beings have always accepted war as a 'necessary evil' does not mean that we must continue to do so once we realize that it will destroy us, both body and soul, if we continue to worship at its shrine."
