Bomb Was Dropped Atomic Bomb
859 wordsThere are many reasons that the Atomic bomb was used on Japan. There are many that criticize the bombing, but I support it. The main reasons for President Harry Truman decided to drop the bomb were, to save lives (American Lives), to bring about a quicker resolution to the war, and to send a message to the world that we now had military supremacy. Growing up in a military family, (with a dad a Vietnam vet, and a grandfather who would have fought in Japan if we had invaded), may have biased my pe...

Knight Ridder Tribune World War Ii
1,791 wordsOn the tiny island of Tinian, the morning silence of August 6, 1945, was broken by the colossal roar of the engines of the B- 29 Super fortress, the Enola Gay preparing for takeoff. Colonel Paul W. Tibbets prepared himself and his crew for the most historic flight of their lives.

Harry Truman Economic Cooperation
332 wordsPresident Harry Truman was determined to avoid what he regarded as the errors of the American past: military weakness and a reluctance to get involved in international problems.

The Truman Doctrine was the beginning of the United States' effort to contain Communism from expanding (the containment pol...

World War Ii Bomb Was Dropped
2,339 wordsIn Cold War Cold War In the post World War II era, a war arose between the Soviet Union and the United States, but in reality there was never really any documented fighting between the two nations, thus spawning the catch phrase Cold War. Even though both countries were ready to go to war at the blink of an eye and almost did, the powers-that-be never got the nerve to authorize a nuclear war that would have made World War II look like child s play. This was a war fought in the political ring, an...

Latin American Nations World War Ii
3,181 wordsThe world has known many great leaders, especially in the post-Civil War era. Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr. , and Harry Truman all rank with the most prominent leaders of all time. However, in my opinion President Franklin Roosevelt made the most difference out of anybody in this century. He began a new era in American history by ending the Great Depression that the country had succumbed to in 1929. Without him ending the Depression, who knows where this country could have gone?

Nuclear Arms Race War With Japan
3,347 wordsRegret is unacceptable in terms of using a destructive weapon in times of war. Dropping the atomic bomb on Japan was, if not a complete mistake, poorly timed. Unfortunately, the moment it was used, it may have seemed to be the only solution to bring peace. This paper will examine the untimeliness of the bomb as manifested in postwar regret and nuclear warfare. The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, thrust the United States into World War II, and thus helped reshape modern warfa...
