Tom Lewis: Atomic Salvation

Broadcast Running Time: 24:11

Seventy-five years ago today, the U.S. dropped the first of two atom bombs on Japan, eventually bringing about the end of WWII. Tom Lewis, retired officer of the Royal Australian Navy, joins us to discuss his new book, Atomic Salvation, about how dropping the A-bomb may have saved millions of lives. There was debate and secrecy involved in the operation leading up to the bombs dropping.

Dr. Lewis looks at how the narrative flipped from dropping the bombs was a good thing to it being absolutely horrible. It has largely to do with the passage of time and forgetting the horrors of war. Young people are not taught how horrible totalitarian governments have been. It makes them harder to recognize when they begin to form again.
