New Book: "Atomic Cover-Up: Two U.S. Soldiers, Hiroshima & Nagasaki"

Looks interesting.

New Book: "Atomic Cover-Up: Two U.S. Soldiers, Hiroshima & Nagasaki" by Greg Mitchell http://www.thenation.com/authors/greg-mitchell



In my latest book (print or e-book) "Atomic Cover-Up: Two U.S. Soldiers, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, and The Greatest Movie Never Made," I probe a turning point in U.S. history: the suppression of film footage, for decades, shot by a U.S. Army unit in the atomic cities -- a wrong turn with staggering consequences even today. This is a detective story, a profile of two remarkable military officers, and one of the last little-told stories of World War II. The cover-up even extended to MGM and Hollywood--and to President Truman. And there was no WikiLeaks to get the film aired.

3. it's a great companion/follow-up to "Hiroshima in America"

which Mitchell co-wrote with Robert Jay Lifton. "Hiroshima in America" is absolutely essential to understanding why the nuclear power industry is so protected today, even after Chernobyl, even after Fukushima.
