About the Book

Atomic Salvation shows, for the first time with numerical analysis, that around 30 million people would have died if the A-bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had not taken place. While approximately five million people under Japanese occupation, and within the invading forces would have perished, the majority of the deaths would have been Japanese. Atomic Salvation shows how the A-bomb attacks in fact saved Japan from extinction.
