Nagasaki: The Forgotten Bomb

    (Antarctic, 2005)
™ and ©2005 Ted Nomura

Ted Nomura offers up a balanced, well-researched look at the events leading up to and following the dropping of the second atomic bomb on Nagasaki. Presented in long passages of text with accompanying illustrations, Nomura’s book focuses not only on the military campaigns engaged by both the United States and Japan, it also reveals what the Japanese citizenry felt about the U.S. and its own government. Included is a look at the invasion of Western culture into Japanese society after 1853 that would shape the country’s views of itself and the west in the decades to come. Given his Japanese heritage and experience serving for the U.S. Air Force, Nomura may be uniquely qualified to offer an objective yet deeply affecting look at the event.
