Scientists joined hands in designing bombs that would become effective in destroying Japan. Through their skills and expertise, they worked together by approving and disapproving some proposals. The process was completed in time and the different groups of people who would make the operation successful was appointed to accomplish the mission. There was development of a target committee which comprised of civilians, officers from the Air Force, scientists and Military Policy Committee-e which advised the groups on how to succeed. Frisch gives some concluding remarks about the decision made on bombing Japan and the possibility of having a demonstration which would have reduced the impact. What primary sources did the source rely on? The author acquired information from different parties including the civilians, security officers and government officials on the event and its impact. As part of the scientists, Frisch was also experienced in the field and uses his knowledge in explaining some of the activities involved in the preparation of the bombing and the attack. His analysis therefore consists of his knowledge and information from the participants in the preparation and accomplishment of the mission. The affected parties also contribute to his understanding of the event as they can recall the destruction. The use of the different primary sources provides accurate information on the bombing of Japan. Each of the primary sources gave some information about the bombing which through combining makes it comprehensive.

    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.
