The involvement of the scientists took place where they participated in the creation of nuclear weapons. However, the Western nations wanted to have control over Japan by rendering it powerless. Germany was able to acquire the nuclear bombs from Japan and used them against the growth and development of the country. The western nations understood that breaking Japan would have to involve a bloody invasion that would lead to surrender. The scientists involved were therefore controlled by senior government official. However, the scientists formed a part of the Western intellectuals who wanted to overthrow the emperor and create a peaceful government in Japan. Based on his argument, Frisch states that the government officials played an important role in planning the attack and the scientists participated in designing the right nuclear bombs that would have increased damage. The government officials were concerned on the ability of the invasion restoring peace in Japan, emerging balance or imbalance in power in the nation and the military power of America as well as economic development. Frisch states that the bombs were tested over a period to ensure that they would not fail once they were used to bomb Japan. The design of the bombs was supposed to make Japan quit from the war unconditionally.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
