that delivered the first atomic bomb during World War II.

 

BGEN Tibbets spoke to a gathering

prior to autographing copies of his book "The Return of the Enola Gay,"

at a book-signing event in the Pentagon Concourse.

pilot

of the US bomber Enola Gay,

which in 1945 dropped

the first nuclear bomb

to be detonated in wartime

 

(...)

 

Paul Tibbets

was in command

of the B-29 aircraft,

which dropped

the five-ton

"Little Boy" bomb

over Hiroshima

as the US tried to end

the second world war

without a ground invasion

of Japan

 

Up to 100,000 people

are estimated to have died

in the explosion.

 

(...)

 

He always maintained

that his conscience

was clear over Hiroshima.

 

"I'm not proud

that I killed 80,000 people,

but I'm proud

that I was able

to start with nothing,

plan it and have it work

as perfectly as it did,"

he said

in a 1975 interview.

 

"You've got

to take stock

and assess the situation

at that time.

 

We were at war ...

 

you use anything

at your disposal.

 

I sleep clearly

every night."

 

Three days after Hiroshima

was obliterated on August 6,

the US dropped

a second bomb on Nagaski,

killing an estimated

40,000 people.
 

 

On August 15,

the Japanese emperor

broadcast

his country's surrender,

saying the war situation had

"developed, not necessarily

to Japan's advantage".

The Last Kamikaze        Video        Guardian Features        The Guardian        11 August 2015

 

The last kamikaze:

'I felt the blood was draining from my face'

 

‘It sounds strange,

but we were congratulating each other

for being selected’

for the special suicide attack unit.

 

‘When I knew we had lost the war ...

the thought going through my mind

was I had missed my chance to die ...

and be remembered in infinite glory.’

 

Two Japanese veterans

share memories of the second world war

and the aftermath of the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima.
