A relative of mine, alive and well today, was a paratrooper who fought his way through the Pacific war and was part of the occupying force in Japan.
He saw Nagasaki and Hiroshima. His point of view is very different from that of your Grandfather (God bless his soul).
This relative of mine saw very, very difficult combat with much filth, disease, brutality, hopelessness and little mercy on either side. But I could
sum up his attitude toward the Atom Bombs as "Justice." The behavior he witnessed on the part of the Japanese left him with no qualms about doing
whatever was necessary to completely break the Japanese Empire and culture.
