I wish I had read the note boefore I finished or even started the book. However, I know that some of what the author wrote must be true because I have heard it in other accounts. Here's what I do know: the atomic bombs that were dropped in Hiroshima and Urikami/Nagasaki are the most horrific things that humans have ever done to other human beings. Some of the details are the most terrifying and sickening of anything I've ever read about. I almost stopped reading this because it was giving me nightmares. However, I kept at it to honor not only those who died but those who survived and have to live with their own waking nightmares each and every moment of their life. While I am disappointed that the credentials of the author and all the facts are not truthful, the book still slams home the message: Please, Lord, never, never again.
