Hiroshima(A) Essay, Research Paper
HiroshimaThe first most powerful bomb, which is called the atom bomb, was droppedon August 6 , 1945. In a city located in Japan, called Hiroshima. Withthese facts and the information i ve read from this one book called Hiroshima I have a very strong opinion which I will speak of now. Ithink that the atomic bomb which was dropped on Hiroshima was a petty,childish way of trying to win a war. It was inhuman, so horrible thatanyone whom lived through it, would most likely be traumatized for therest of their living lives. I don t think what the Americans did was veryright at all. If they wanted a war, not that war is a way to solveanything, then they should have fought the old fashioned way. Rather thanruining so many peoples lives. Atomic bombs are not something that shouldeven be in existence, but they are. There s really nothing we can do aboutthem, because of the more powerful people in this world. They find thisextraordinary weapons to be their only defense. But I think !it s pathetic. They go off an kill so many people, and wounded the rest. They brought many cities to destruction and cost them millions of dollarsto rebuild. You just can t toy with peoples lives like that. I think itshould be illegal. If they wanted to harm certain people, then fight itout with them. Don t kill innocent peoples lives. If they knew theenormous danger and effects of this new bomb, then they shouldn t have
done it. Perhaps they could have found a different way to finish this all. Critical Appraisal- Z for Zachariah and Hiroshima In my personal opinion Z for Zachariah could have been a bitmore accurate in which ways they made the radiation affect people. Firstoff, in Hiroshima , which was a true story, not all the people died fromthe radiation, yes they got very ill from it. Such as fevers, vomiting,hair loss, white blood count going up and down, etc. But most of them diedfrom all the wounds from the bomb. And the radiation didn t kill andpoison all the things within the bomb as it did in Z . Hiroshima hadalot more telling about how the radiation effect the people physicallythan Z did. They were pretty close to getting the same idea of whathappens when people get radiation, but they missed quite a few points. Ican understand why the valley was saved from radiation in Z becausemaybe the bomb, or whatever it was didn t go as far as the valley. Like in Hiroshima they only bombed certain towns at different times. I would saythat Z did an okay job on being accurate with all the i!nformation they stated, such as a fever, vomiting, weakness etc.In Z Anne helped saved his life which made no sense, because in Hiroshima thedoctors are trained, yet they couldn t help most of the people. And whywould Mr.Loomis lab be spared from the bomb, and the radiation. Z hadalot of things which didn t fit very well, but they were quite close.
