Dr, Ed Gordon: This program on the bombing of Japan and the dropping of the atom bomb will chronicle the events that made U.S. airpower a decisive factor in the fall of Japan in 1945. The story of the end of the Pacific war is a unique mixture of military strategy, modern science, and ancient traditions. In the end, Japan’s leaders had two choices – defeat or the possibility of total annihilation. Never in the history of warfare would air power play such an important role in the outcome of a war.
