"70 years ago ... in the quiet early morning of August 6, 1945, the world changed irreversibly when the first nuclear weapon in warfare was used by the USA against Japan. The target of Hiroshima had been spared previous bombing, so that the destructive force of the 15 kiloton uranium bomb could be assessed. The result, repeated 3 days later against Nagasaki with a larger plutonium device, was near total devastation."
The Lancet, vol. 386 (no. 9992) August 1, 2015. p. 403
