Why is it 246 pages and 195MB? Is there a lot of images? I'm (trying to) downloading it now.

Thankyou for showing interest in this data. It is extremely valuable information.
I thought this was interesting too because aparently the radioactive fallout readings, indicating it was "safe" to enter the blast zone, within a reletively "short" amount of time. I hope this uploads correctly, apologies if it doesnt.
When the Commission was formed, a month had already elapsed since the
bombs were dropped on these cities. In order to obtain adequate clinical
data while patients were still available, there was great urgency to enter
these cities at the earliest possible date. Permission to enter these
cities could not be obtained from the Commanding General of the Sixth Arngr
since troops of the Sixth Army had not occupied the region. However, permission
to enter the aarea was eventually obtained and through the liaison
with the Imperial Goverrment this was first accomplished with the cooperation
of the Japanese Police. On 8 September 19^5> the group landed on
Iwakuni Airfield near Hiroshima with six plane loads of supplies. A preliminary
survey of the damage was made and the physicists determined the
amount of residual radioactivity present, which was foiond to be within the
limits of safety. The group returned to Tokyo and on 19 September 19^1-5
proceeded to Omura Airfield adjacent to Nagasaki. Here also, preliminary
observations were made and the residual radiation was foiind to be within
the limits of safety. Colonel Warren and a part of the Manhattan District
group remained in Nagasaki to make further investigations. On 29 September
19^5, the remainder of the Nagasaki investigation team was landed at Omura

I'll add more...when time permits. Its totally amazing what kind of detailed data was collected from these horrible events. I too, thought , by what U.S. public schools lead us to believe...the towns were vaporized and millions lost their lives. Not at all the case. "Even one death, is two too many" g.a.g.
