The new column by Victor Davis Hanson at NRO is in contemplation of the anniversary of Hiroshima: “Hirooshima sixty years later.” If you’ve read Hanson’s Ripples of Battle, you know there is a personal element to Hanson’s reflections on the subject. The bomb was not dropped in time to save his familial namesake. The introduction to the book dramatically reconstructs his namesake’s story in heartbreaking detail (click here, here, here and here).
