Seventy-two years ago tomorrow, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. A few days later, a second bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki, resulting in the surrender of Japan to the US armed forces. “The Last Train From Hiroshima” is an account of these bombings and the people who were directly effected by them. Well researched and beautifully written, this book is historical biography at its best.
One of the truly remarkable take-aways from this book for me was the stories that he highlights of the survivors, some who actually survived being on ground zero of both Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the time of the bombings. Some were Christians who gave glory to God for preserving them. I found this book to be both gripping and fascinating.
