Hiroshima was the first city ever targeted to be bombed by an atomic weapon, known as "Little Boy". The attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki are seen as near enough the end of World War Two. In World War Two, as the war drew to an end, such a terrible ending could never have been understood by the people of the day as so few people understood the power of atomic energy. The battles at Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain and the Battle of the Atlantic seemed to pale into comparison with what took place in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
