Widely considered as an inevitable measure to ensure Japanese surrender, the Nagasaki attack was carried out just three days after the nuclear detonation at Hiroshima. In “Nagasaki. Der Mythos der entscheidenden Bombe”, Adolf Grimme Prize laureate Klaus Scherer portrays apologists and survivors.
His book is a captivating experience as it debunks popular misconception. Scherer – who previously worked as foreign correspondent for German broadcaster ARD in Washington, D.C. and Tokyo for many years – scored a bestseller a few years ago with “Wahnsinn Amerika”, an intense insight into the manifold aspects of life in the United States of today.
