Project 2 2 Research Plan Research Question : “What strategic role did the U.S. military have in the planning of the atomic bomb campaign?” Secondary Sources : Alperovitz,G., Messer, R.L., & Bernstein, B.J. (1991). Marshall, Truman, and the decision to drop the bomb. International Security, 16(3). 221. Retrieved from ? url= Morton, L. (1957). The decision to use the atomic bomb. Foreign Affairs, 35(2), 334-353. Retrieved from Historical Context : Concurrent with the start of WWII, a group of scientists started tinkering with the notion of using atomic energy for military purposes, they also cautioned the American government that the Germans were already carrying out experiments revolving around the subject (Morton, 1957). On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor; it was this act and this act alone that caused the United States to enter WWII, two years after the official start of the war ( World War II [1939-1945], n.d.). Since America decided to join WWII in 1941, they fought Japan with everything they had and Japan still refused to surrender; finally, after four long years of fighting President Truman decided to drop the atomic bomb which ended WWII once and for all (Alperovitz,1991).
