can't imagine what would have been the history of WW2 without them
when a day went by, after the nihongi government not reply to our demand for unconditional surrender, general lemay called paul tibbets into his office and asked him if they had another one, "of those things". tibbets assured him they did have one more and got on the special teletype to los alamos and asked for the third bomb to be sent. however, the day after that, the Emperor Hirohito make his famous radio broadcast that was done by specially recording the message on a record disk the day before. during that night there was an attempted coup at the imperial palace, that thankfully the elite guardsmen who remained loyal to the emperor were able to put down and so the disk was taken out of the palace and taken to the broadcast studio and played for all the world to hear. and that ended the war.
