Week 7 Individual Work
“Writing in his journal on July 25, 1945, President Truman described with utter clarity his views on the destructive nature of the atomic bomb: We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world. It may be the fire of destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley era, after Noah and his fabulous ark. Yet, despite his characterization of the bomb as the fire that would destroy the world, Truman goes on to state: This weapon is to be used against Japan between now and August 10 It seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful. How could a ...view middle of the document...

I’m sure they will not do that, but we will have given them the chance. Yet ultimately, Truman’s ideals failed to affect the reality of his actions in dropping the bomb (.(Alperovitz, Gar, and Sanho Tree., 1995).”
“Was the bomb even necessary to secure peace with Japan? Could President Truman have attained peace without spilling the blood of thousands of innocents? The answer to both questions is an overwhelming yes. Firstly, Truman knew that the Japanese were virtually defeated in their social, industrial, and military spheres. Secondly, he further knew that factions within the Japanese government had Imperial sanction to sue for peace if the Allies ensured the safety of the Emperor and the institution of the Imperial Throne. Moreover, on account of the hopelessness of the Japanese situation and Japan’s willingness to sue for peace, nearly every one of Truman’s military advisors agreed that the atomic bomb was unnecessary to induce the Japanese to surrender. Truman’s political advisors also counseled the president to clarify the term unconditional surrender to allow the Japanese to retain their Emperor and choose their own form of government after the war. Yet, despite Japan’s willingness to surrender and his own advisors counsel to secure peace as soon as possible through clarification of the term unconditional surrender, President Truman never pursued peace with Japan prior to the dropping of the atomic bomb. The question remains: if President Truman was so intent on saving American lives and ending the war with Japan, why did he not pursue peace with the Japanese prior to the bombs (Lewin, Ronald, 1982)?”
“It seems in looking at history that President Truman deliberately prolonged the war in order to drop the bomb on Hiroshima. Furthermore, Truman ordered the bomb dropped without warning and directly on top of the city center, not on top of the military base on the outskirts of the city. President Truman justified his reason to drop the bomb by stating that Hiroshima was abstractly military target and Japan had been given sufficient warning. But since the bombs were not militarily necessary to secure peace with Japan, Truman had no reason to drop the bomb (Alperovitz, Gar, and Sanho Tree , 1995).”
“In order to determine what President Truman’s true intentions were for ordering the use of atomic bombs against Japan, it is necessary to look at three different areas what Truman knew
about the Japanese social, cultural, military, industrial, and political situation prior to the dropping of the bomb;(Alperovitz, Gar, and Sanho Tree , 1995) what Truman’s various advisors counseled him concerning Japan and the bomb in light of the Japanese situation; and finally, (Alperovitz, Gar, and Sanho Tree., 1995)what possible reasons Truman might have had for dropping the bomb on a Japanese city rather than pursuing.”
“Peace with the Japanese prior to using the bomb. In the end, one can only conclude that President Truman’s primary intention for...
