Atom Strikes! DVD
(Devastation of Hiroshima & Nagasaki)
This documentary from the U.S. War Department is a must-see for World War 2 buffs, and those fascinated by the science and shock that sent the world irreversibly into the atomic age. It contains good natural sound and video of the fury of the first atomic bomb detonation in New Mexico, and a very detailed, rarely seen look at the devastation unleashed on the infrastructures of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There are haunting images, including the shadow of a pedestrian literally burned into a sidewalk. Includes an account of the blast from a visiting Jesuit priest who survived it.
