Atomic Bomb Perspectives – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

These four fact-focused titles explore the various aspects of the first two atomic bombs. The Manhattan Project details the research and development of the bombs, The U.S. Decision To Drop the Atomic Bomb explores the various views for and against the bombs’ employment, Atomic Bomb Survivor Stories describes the devastation to Hiroshima and the resulting deaths caused by radiation, and How the Bomb Changed Everything discusses subsequent events including the Cold War and nuclear protests…. These volumes lend themselves well to reports but browsers will pass; selectors should consider their need for the topic.
