Hiroshima Remembered

Historian Victor Davis Hanson weighs in on the Hiroshima/Nagasaki question. I'm not a big fan of Hanson (sometimes he's more interested in advancing his agenda than getting the facts straight), but in this case he gets it mostly right: the A-bombing of those two cities, horrible as it was, was the least horrible of available alternatives.

(Paul Fussell, of course, had the definitive statement on the subject...)
