Below are some of the people who were involved in the atomic bombing of Japan. I've taken a broad approach as to who should be included; for instance, some were involved in the Manhattan Project or were Japanese leaders. There are political leaders and advisors, military men, and scientists, all listed alphabetically. I'll be adding more as time permits. Just click on the names below for a description of the person. Where available, I've listed some of the key books for more information on each person. And remember... this can be like eating peanuts.
