Why such a reactionary response, what are you afraid of? I previously thought that WW2 History was generally accurately depicted, not so much now. I don’t hate atomic weaponry I just don’t buy into the conventional history that that was the only choice. What really concerns me is the closed mindedness of so many about other views or even a mild deviation from orthodoxy.

What am I afraid of? ... What a stupid question. You are delusional, so maybe I should be concerned about you? Bwahahaha

You might like to read Japan's Longest Day
, a book translated from Japanese in the 1960s, whose authors interviewed a number of participants in the events of the final days before the surrender. Even up to the last minute many generals wanted to keep fighting, and the Emperor's plan to make the radio address announcing surrender almost didn't come off. It suggests, although you can interpret the evidence for yourself, that only after Nagasaki did the emperor screw up the courage to end the war, although he had wanted to before that.
