Hiroshima by John Hersey tells the story of August 6, 1945, the day of the first atomic bomb, through the eyes of six survivors: a clerk, a physician, and widow, a German priest, a surgeon, and a pastor. Told in journalistic style, this novel shows the horror of that day and the weeks and months to come, the long-lasting effects of the bomb, the human loss, and the heroism of the survivors.
