A fascinating story of a multi-generational quest, told from different views, to come to terms with a WWII assignment that at the time was a ‘plum-assignment’ — to join the Strategic Bombing Survey crew as a cinematographer to record the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. In honor of her father, author Leslie Sussan, along with her daughter, recount the oral history of 2nd Lt. Herbert Sussan and tell their life-journeys on what had consumed their father and grandfather’s life — the horrors of the bombing and why it drove him to spend the remainder of his life trying to get the real story told. A captivating read.
