The Most Controversial Decision is as advertised in its thoughtful rebuttal of the revisionist view that victory in the Pacific was imminent without the use of nuclear weapons and that Truman s use of them was as much or about postwar geopolitical considerations than about defeating Japan This revisionist view is difficult to suare with the case laid out by the author However the chapter Necessary But Was It Right did not live up to its billing or my expectations in that it fails to delve into the deeper uestions of just what is permissible to save lives The author effectively slaps down the idea that the war in the Pacific could have been won without either nuclear weapons or massive American and Japanese casualties and the arrows he aims at those who self righteously declare that Truman of whom I m no fan was a war criminal hit home But he does not really engage with the uestion of whether it can be still right even if hundreds of thousands or even millions of lives were ultimately spared by their use Is it right to directly target civilians to save a million people A billion This is perhaps a rabbit hole with no end but strikes me as a central consideration in any debate over whether the use of nuclear weapons in Japan was morally justifiable
