How Adlai Stevenson Helped to End Nuclear-Weapon Testing

  • George Bunn


I have supported efforts to control nuclear weapons since the end of World War II when, as I perceived it, my life was saved by the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Until those bombs were dropped, the rulers of Japan showed no signs of surrendering. 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.
