This World War II classic is the first comprehensive photographic record of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. By the prolific team of Dr. Donald M. Goldstein, Katherine V. Dillon, and J. Michael Wenger, it contains over four hundred photographs of the U.S. preparations for the attack and of the two cities and their people before, during, and after those fateful days. Many are U.S. government and Japanese photographs never before seen by the public. Rain of Ruin is an objective, informative account of the momentous events that changed the world in 1945 and are still debated today.
Katherine V. Dillon (1916-2005) was a chief warrant officer, United States Air Force (retired), and longtime collaborator with Gordon W. Prange and Donald M. Goldstein on their work. She served during World War II and the Korean War.
