First Pictures Inside Bomb Blasted Japan

Today marks the 74th anniversary of the U.S. dropping an atomic bomb on Nagasaki. This video from United News shows the damage done by both atomic blasts and some earlier firebombings, and contains footage that demonstrates the ending of World War II: Allied prisoners leaving a POW camp in Japan, President Truman attending a baseball game on September 8, 1945 (first time for a U.S. president to do so since the war started) and Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright returning to the States after surviving three years as a prisoner of war.

  1. Remarkable footage of very dramatic scenes at the end. One can’t help but notice that the other cities in Japan, such as Osaka & Kure, look just as flat as Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Our boys dropped countless tons of bombs during this war!!
