An extraordinary documentation of the atomic bomb blast on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Not only does it include physical analysis of the blast forces, but an extensive photographic gallery as well. The scientific analysis details the effects on each type of rock and the structural damages on differing architectural buildings for varying distances away from the hypocenter of the blast. Included is a panoramic photograph of the ruins of the city taken a month after the blast with detailed labeling. The bomb's demographic damages are presented in the types / uses of structures helping the reader understand the necessary work / expense to rebuild the city. Effects on the human body are demonstrated in both statistics and photographic evidence. This valuable book is entitled, "Hiroshima Under Atomic Attack" with a tagline for Shogo Nagaoka. There are Japanese character subtitles throughout. In excellent condition, the only flaws are sticker residue on the back cover and a one inch tear on the back fly leaf. Bright yellow card stock was used for the front and back covers with dark purple ribbons suppling the stability for the binding. Dimensions are: 10 1/8 x 7 1/4 inches.
