On August 9, 1945, a B29 bomber, with a name few Americans would ever hear about, returned from a mission that dropped the second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Unlike the Hiroshima mission of the Enola Gay three days before, there were no cheering crowds or medals waiting for the crew when they returned. The history of World War II would little more than mention their heroic mission, and then much of the details were either recorded incorrectly or credited to someone else. Their gripping ordeal has been mostly ignored. Why has there been little disclosed about the Nagasaki mission? Was it because the city was never hit by the bomb?
