July 24, 12:00PM-3:00PM
The day after the Japanese City of Nagasaki was destroyed by an atomic bomb, President Harry S. Truman told his Cabinet that there would be no further use of nuclear weapons. Nevertheless, the nuclear option quickly became the linchpin of U.S. military strategy during the Cold War, and several times during the Korean War, 1950-53, Trumanís key military advisers urged the use of atomic weapons. Dr. Devineís lecture will examine Trumanís decisions not to use nuclear weapons in Korea at a time when the United States held an overwhelming superiority over its Communist adversaries.
