**caution** Disturbing images aheadMilitary personnel aboard a plane named Necessary Evil took these photographs moments after the atomic bomb from hell was unleashed first on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and three days later on the city of Nagasaki. President Harry S. Truman issued an executive ordered that obliterated 166,000 civilians in the first blast and approximately 80,000 in the second. Those are conservative estimates. More than 1/2 of the casualties occurred on the first day of the attacks. Japan surrendered six days later and World War II ended.
