on HBO. I don't have cable, so I'll have to wait until the miniseries is released on DVD.
From the AICN review:
It also suggests the atom bomb couldn’t have been invented a minute too soon.
Were the Japanese savage fighters? Or just willing to fight to the death in defense of their homeland? I don't think the miniseries will be trying to justify the use of the atom bombs on two Japanese cities, but those who defend the bombings may use it as a visual illustration to strengthen their case.
