    During the World War 2 in 1945 when United States saw the forces of Japan becoming unstoppable and the were continuously bombing the ships and marines of United States there was no option left for United States except atomic bombing. After there was no stocks of missiles on the plane the Japanese plane bombarded their planes to the Pearl Harbour ship which caused maximum damage to naval aviators of United States. So in order to prevent any further damage the first atomic bomb was dropped in the city of Hiroshima in World war 2 on August 6th and after three days the second bomb was dropped on August 9,1945. For about six months United States had made fighting which included bombing in the 67 cities of Japan. The China and United Kingdom signed the declaration for surrender for Japan. The Japanese completely ignored this ultimatum and continued with the fighting But then by the orders given by the President Harry. Truman United States dropped the nuclear weapon named as “Little Boy” on the city of Hiroshima.
    Within the first two to four months of the bombing, there was a mass destruction over Japan and almost 90,000 to 166,000 people lost their lives and most of the deaths occurred on the first day. The statistics issued by the Hiroshima health department showed that 60 percent of the people died from flash or burn flames, 30 percent died from the falling debris and 10 percent died from other causes.
