    75 hours after the utter annhilation of Hiroshima, the Empire of Japan still hesitated to admit and accept defeat.

    Our reaction?

    The annhilation of Nagasaki, a major shipyard and war materiel industrial centre.

    The device detonated precisely between the two primary targets in the city, two Mitsubishi factories, one producing arms, the other torpedoes.

    In a split second tens of thousands of people were incinerated and 6,700 square kilometres of the city were leveled.

    Five days later the Emperor announced to his people the surrender of Japan.

    As I said, I've read that there is no mention of Nagasaki during the reunions of the Council of the Emperor, with all the HQ and general staff, from the 9th to the 15th - date of the reddition - of august.

    A japanese expert think they were - general staff - ready to have several others bombs, if they could keep the power.

    anyway, I think that the second bomb had effect on the population's moral.
