All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

No warning can really prepare you for these images of ashen corpses, maimed survivors and apocalyptic destruction, but in an age of renewed nuclear tension, there can be no question as to their relevance.

Top Critic

Intelligent, often poignant, and valuable for offering an oral history by those who witnessed one of the most traumatic events of the 20th century.
