you have to watch this (1946) video (which the government tried to suppress), in order to believe it.
to describe it as cool and objective is a gross understatement. Despite which, it packs a punch to match the topic. With lines like these:
the difference in the totals of destruction to lives and property between the two cities, suggests the importance of the special circumstances in their layout and construction. These differences have a direct bearing on the result of the bombing and must be considered in evaluating the effectiveness of atomic demolition
no wonder the government didn’t want it’s citizens (or anyone else) to see it. That would have made nuclear war so unattractive.
