"From the fire-bombing of Japanese cities to the use of the atomic bombs, Dr. Chun acknowledged the aguish of those who planned and ordered he attacks, but did not digress into the moral debate himself. Questions surrounding President Truman's decision to launch atomic weapons persist to this day; Japan 1945 should be an essential piece of reference material for anyone wishing to weigh those questions within their proper historical and political contexts." - C. Peter Chen, "World War 2 Database / ww2db.com "(January 2010) "Author Zaloga along with some superb photographs and the illustrations of Ian Palmer, tells the story of these vehicles from their earliest inception to the current range of vehicles to those being developed for the future. A story that has really just begun and is as fascinating today as it was when first developed. A book I know you will find interesting and informative. Highly recommended along with all of Osprey's titles in this series." -Scott Van Aken, "Modelling Madness" (October 2008) "In short, this is an excellent analysis of the decisions and operations leading up to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki." -Jeff Grim, "Collected Miscellany" (January 2009)
