The use of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II was a controversial decision. Ever since, historians have revisited the use of these weapons to try and uncover different motives other than the accepted reason that the atomic bombs spared the lives of millions of U.S. and Japanese lives. My Independent Study aims to rebuff some of these revisionist ideas and to revisit why the atomic bombs were necessary.
