The Last Train from Hiroshima: The Survivors Look Back (Unabridged)

by Charles Pellegrino

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

Last Train from Hiroshima offers a "you are there" time capsule, gracefully wrapped in elegant prose. At the narrative's core are accounts, some eyewitness and some to still be substantiated, of those who experienced the atomic explosions firsthand - both Japanese civilians and American fliers in the air. Thirty people are known to have fled Hiroshima for Nagasaki - where they arrived just in time to survive the second bomb. According to Pellegrino, one of them is the only person who experienced the full effects at ground zero both times. Pellegrino weaves spellbinding stories together within a narrative that challenges the "official report", showing what happened - and providing an explanation into the why. Recently, there have been questions about the accuracy of some parts of this book. At this time, Audible will continue to make it available to our customers, but we wanted to make you aware of the issues. A Note from Henry Holt and Company and Macmillan Books: "It is with deep regret that Henry Holt and Company announces that we will no longer print, correct or ship copies of Charles Pellegrino's The Last Train from Hiroshima due to the discovery of dishonest sources of information for the book. It is easy to understand how even the most diligent author could be duped by a source, but we also understand that this opens that book to very detailed scrutiny. The author of any work of non-fiction must stand behind its content. We must rely on our authors to answer questions that may arise as to the accuracy of their work and reliability of their sources. Unfortunately, Mr. Pellegrino was not able to answer the additional questions that have arisen about his book to our satisfaction."
