The Shock of Hiroshima: The Japanese Bomb Projects

Provide your understanding of the topic of a reexamination of the shock of Hiroshima: the Japanese Bomb Projects and the Surrender Decision by Tristan Grunow.

Open with a general description of the topic and/or problem addressed by the work in question. The review should, as concisely as possible, summarize the article’s argument. What, ultimately, is this article’s raison d’être? If there is an identifiable thesis statement, consider quoting it directly. Some basic biographical information about the author(s) is necessary. Who are they? What are they known for? What particular sorts of qualifications and expertise do they bring to the subject?

A reasonably thorough indication of the research methods used (if applicable) and of the range of substantive material covered in the article should be included. Identify one particular area in which you think the article does well. This should, ideally, be its single greatest strength as an academic work. Identify one particular area in which you think the article could be improved. While this weakness might be related to something you believe to be incorrect, it is more likely to be something that the author omitted or neglected to address in sufficient detail.
