COUNTDOWN 1945: THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF THE ATOMIC BOMB AND THE 116 DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
by Chris Wallace with Mitch Weiss.
Saturday, July 9, approximately 12:30 – 2:00pm
Countdown 1945 tells the gripping true story of the turbulent days, weeks, and months leading up to August 6, 1945, when President Harry S Truman gives the order to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. From Truman’s shock of learning of the bomb’s existence, to wrestling with the devastating carnage that will result if he gives the order to use America’s first weapon of mass destruction, veteran journalist Chris Wallace tells the story of an untested new president confronting a decision that he knows will change the world forever. Discussion led by Steve Levin. See details about attending in-person events.
