On Sunday morning, August 6, an American warplane flew over Hiroshima, a Japanese army base on the Inland Sea. It dropped a single bomb. When that missile struck the earth, it blew up in the greatest man-made explosion in the history of the world. The United States had loosed an atomic bomb on Japan.
