Sunday, August 9, 2020

On the 75th anniversary of the dropping of an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, acclaimed historian Richard Frank will discuss his 1999 book Downfall: The End of the Imperial Japanese Empire. Downfall explores the decision to use the atomic bomb and provides a comprehensive account of how Japan’s leaders were willing to risk complete annihilation to preserve the nation’s existing order.
