More than 60 years on the impact of Hiroshima is still felt
More than 60 years on the impact of Hiroshima is still felt 
As victory in Europe seemed assured by April 1945 the allies turned their attention to Japan. The Japanese were an intense military force. They had already taken over enormous parts of central and south-east Asia. The fall of Singapore in 1942 had been a staggering blow to the allies and it looked liked nothing but an enormous offensive campaign could force the Japanese back. On 1 April 1945 the United States undertook the largest invasion of the entire Pacific campaign. A staggering number of troops, ships, guns and bombs were used in the invasion of the Japanese island of Okinawa. Although they did manage to force the Japanese to surrender the human cost was staggering. The U.S. lost 12,000 men, and 36,000 more were wounded, the Japanese fared even worse in the battle losing 107,000 troops and as many as 100,000 civilians.
