I read an article that stated there was a plan to use Abombs to blow breeches in the Japanese defenses so that our troops could break out of the beachheads.

How many US troops would have succombed to radiation poisoning had we used the Bombs that way?

And your point? (I'm already pretty sure I know what it is, but go ahead and expound on the theme).

Which also brings up the fact that nearly everyone at that time simply thought of the bomb as a bigger explosive. The effects of radiation were not well understood.
