On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atom bomb ever dropped on a city. This book, John Hersey's journalistic masterpiece, tells what happened on that day. Told through the memories of survivors, this timeless, powerful and compassionate document has become a classic "that stirs the conscience of humanity" (The New York Times).
"Nothing can be said about this book that can equal what the book has to say. It speaks for itself, and in an unforgettable way, for humanity."--The New York Times
