Question and answer
What is the best explanation for why the United States decided to target Hiroshima? It was geographically suited for bombing and evaluating the results of bombing. It would have few casualties because it was nearly destroyed by previous bombings. It was a religiously and culturally significant city for the Japanese monarchy. It was a city with many family connections to Emperor Hirohito and
military leaders.
Hiroshima wasn't actually targeted though lol...the day was cloudy and the bomb was meant for tokyo...because of the clouds they could not find tokyo so they dropped it on hiroshima since it had an airbase and it was not cloud covered

User: Why was the Manhattan Project kept top secret? The United States did not want Great Britain or France to know that it had nuclear technology. No one was sure if the atom bomb would actually ever work and they didn't want negative feedback. The Allies were afraid that the technology would be stolen by spies belonging to Germany or Japan. The United States was developing the technology illegally and with stolen technology and materials.

User: Why did President Truman feel he had no choice but to drop the atomic bombs? He feared that Japan would mount a fresh attack on US forces. He felt that without the bomb a costly invasion would be necessary. He feared a Japanese invasion of the California coast. He believed he needed to defeat Japan first before defeating Germany.
