//The 'Mankind' episode spoke about us dropping the atomic bomb, but did not go into any reasoning for it.  Esme was focused on this - why would we do something so destructive.  I found a series of videos showing the attack, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's war speech and description of the war we joined in Europe - and then also the full description of Hiroshima (National Geographic Explorers) -- including radiation sickness.. why we have tried so hard all over the world to never do it again.
