How Adlai Stevenson Helped to End Nuclear-Weapon Testing

This was true even though they had lost territory to American forces, including the islands of Okinawa and Iwo Jima. American troops were landed from small landing craft lowered into the sea offshore from these Japanese islands by navy troop-carrying ships, such as the one I was headed for as a crew member in 1945.
