Abstract:

It is desirable to present a summary of the studies that were made in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in such a way that a comparison of the effects of the atomic bombing of the two cities is possible. Since the structural condition of the cities and disposition of the population were widely diverse, this comparison does not necessarily reflect the relative efficiency of the bomb in each city.
