9780826514677: Japan 1945: A U.S. Marine's Photographs From Ground Zero

In September 1945 Joe O'Donnell was a twenty-three-year-old Marine Corps photographer wading ashore in Japan, then under American occupation. His orders were to document the aftermath of U.S. bombing raids in Japanese cities, including not only Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also cities such as Sasebo, one of the more than sixty Japanese cities firebombed before the atomic blasts. "The people I met," he now recalls, "the suffering I witnessed, and the scenes of incredible devastation taken by my camera caused me to question every belief I had previously held about my so-called enemies."

From the Inside Flap:

Moving images of Japan in the months after World War II ended, as captured by a young Marine Corps photographer.

About the Author:

For more than twenty years, Joe O'Donnell worked for the United States Information Agency, photographing U.S. presidents, world leaders, and unfolding history. When he died in 2007, controversy erupted over his mistaken claims late in life to several iconic photographs of Truman and the Kennedys. The photographs in Japan 1945 are from the 4x5 negatives in the possession of his widow.
