HIROSHIMA SUNSET is much more than a novel. It's a love story woven within a riveting factual account and told by way of a mysterious journal that keeps the reader guessing until the end. Cleverly written, easily understood and shocking, it exposes some little known truths about the decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima in 1945, in particular that Japan wanted to surrender and overtures to the west were ignored.

Little known also, is the fact that thousands of Australian soldiers served in the post-war occupation and worked to re-establish some normality in a devastated country.

Even if you are not into war stories, this is an educational must-read. Fascinating, descriptive, informative; a page turner.
