Modern warfare was definitely changed in August 6th 1945, at about 8.15am local time. The Enola Gay B-52 bomber dropped the “little boy” on Hiroshima. The city was destroyed. A new era had begun.

It is difficult to see modern Japanese people, a peaceful society, as one of the instigators and fighting parties during WW2, though the Japanese history has been paved by their warlords and even the city of Edo, modern Tokyo, became relevant when shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu established his military government here, from where he and his clan then ruled the whole country.

Enough said.
