I just watched a documentary. I'm pretty sure I learned the opposite of what it tried to teach me. It was about the mission to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. They were angling for horror and devastation with the way they presented the movie.
"Anyone caught in the open air below the fireball was instantly vaporized, or turned to carbon. They left their shadows behind in ash. There were tens of thousands of them."
Sounds good, almost. Maybe they were the lucky ones?
