Hiroshima - This is an important army
depot and port of embarkation in the middle of an urban industrial area. It is
a good radar target and it is such a size that a large part of the city could
be extensively damaged. There are adjacent hills which are likely to produce a
focusing effect which would considerably increase the blast damage. Due to
rivers it is not a good incendiary target. (Classified as an AA Target)
The feasibility of following the raid by an incendiary
mission was discussed. This has the
great advantage that the enemies' fire fighting ability will probably be
paralyzed by the gadget so that a very serious conflagration should be capable
of being started.
It was agreed that psychological factors in the target
selection were of great importance. Two aspects of this are (1) obtaining the
greatest psychological effect against Japan and (2) making the initial use
sufficiently spectacular for the importance of the weapon to be internationally
recognized when publicity on it is released." - from the minutes of the second
meeting of the Target Committee Los Alamos, May 10-11, 1945

Truman and other allied leaders issued the Potsdam Declaration, an

MEMORANDUM ON THE
USE OF S-1 BOMB:
Ever since I have been in touch with this program I
have had a feeling that before the bomb is actually used against Japan that
Japan should have some preliminary warning for say two or three days in advance
of use. The position of the US as a great humanitarian nation and the fair play
attitude of our people generally is responsible in the main for this feeling.
During recent weeks I have also had the feeling very definitely that the
Japanese government may be searching for some opportunity which they could use
as a medium of surrender. Undersecretary of the Navy Ralph A. Bard, June 27,
TO: General Carl Spaatz Commanding General US Army Strategic Air
The 509 Composite Group, 20th Air Force will deliver its
first special bomb as soon as weather will permit visual bombing after about 3
August 1945 on one of the targets: Hiroshima, Kokura, Niigata and Nagasaki. To
carry military and civilian scientific personnel from the War Department to
observe and record the effects of the explosion of the bomb, additional
aircraft will accompany the airplane carrying the bomb. The observing planes
will stay several miles distant from the point of impact of the bomb.
Additional bombs will be delivered on the above targets as soon as made
ready by the project staff. Further instructions will be issued concerning
targets other than those listed above.
Discussion of any and all
information concerning the use of the weapon against Japan is reserved to the
Secretary of War and the President of the US. No communiques on the subject or
releases of information will be issued by Commanders in the field without
specific prior authority. Any news stories will be sent to the War Department
for specific clearance.
The foregoing directive is issued to you by
direction and with the approval of the Secretary of War and of the Chief of

Bombing of Civilians in World War II
Hiroshima Dresden had no military
value as a target.
For centuries, it had been a center of German
cultural heritage - a heritage that had everything to do with positive
developments in human civilization, and nothing to do with
the Nazi disease that
had been imposed on Germany by the Anglo-American financial elite.
Dresden was chosen for
destruction as an act of TERRORISM,
directed, not against the Nazis, per se, but the German people and as a warning
to the Soviets.
The firebombing of Dresden, creating a raging inferno of
destruction that slaughtered more that 100,000 human beings, was conceived and
directed by a group of social psychiatrists at the Strategic Bombing Survey,
affiliated with the Special Operations Command of the
Office of Strategic Services
This group was effectively overseen by the head of the British
Psychological Warfare Directorate, Brig. Gen. John Rawlings Rees, the director
the Tavistock Clinic in London, which, since the 1920s, had served as a center
of psychological warfare operations of the British Empire.
The team at
the Strategic Bombing Survey, which included a host of US-based Tavistock
operatives, such as Kurt Lewin, Rensis Likert, and Margaret Mead, theorized
that the terror inflicted on the German population through the "message of
Dresden" would break their will to
fight, leaving them fearful, frightened, and disorganized.

from among the great states of Europe, making it a permanently psychologically

that "all that is German" could be wiped away, all of its culture and history,

"One of the main techniques for breaking morale through a
`strategy of terror' consists in exactly this tactic - keep the person hazy as
to where he stands and what just he may expect. If, in addition, frequent
vacillations between severe disciplinary measures and promises of good
treatment, together with the spreading of contradictory news, make the
cognitive structure of this situation utterly unclear, then the individual may
cease to know when a particular plan would lead toward or away from his goal.
Under these conditions, even those individuals who have definite goals and are
ready to take risks will be paralyzed with severe inner conflicts in regard to
what to do." - Kurt Lewin
As the pilots and their crews came to realize
what they had done - the creation of a raging inferno, burning civilian targets

Ground Zero: Urakami Cathedral, Nagasaki
At 11:02 a.m. on August 9,

Nagasaki was attacked with a bomb made of plutonium, named after Pluto,
