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
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
There are no new answers.
