I've shown, time and again, that the target was dead on the civilians.
The target at Hiroshima was the tens of thousands of Japanese soldiers within the city, as well as the military headquarters that was in charge of repelling any invasion in the southern half of Japan.
The target at Nagasaki was the huge weapons factories there.
The military aspects were small and largely untouched by the bomb.
A huge military center that is filled with tens of thousands of soldiers, is hardly small. And the bomb killed about half the soldiers.
The military headquarters in charge of repelling any invasion in the southern half of a country, is hardly small. And the bomb leveled that military headquarters.
Huge factories for producing weapons, are hardly small. And the damage to a number of those factories was extensive.
Particularly satisfying was the damage to the Mitsubishi Torpedo Works.
Pearl Harbor had been thought immune to air-dropped torpedoes, as the water was so shallow that the torpedoes would just embed themselves in the mud. And it was one of the only harbors in the world with such a natural immunity to torpedoes.
Japan had to extensively modify their torpedoes just for Pearl Harbor before they could conduct the attack, and the Mitsubishi Torpedo Works was the place that carried out those modifications.
The damage that the A-bomb did to that torpedo factory was absolutely beautiful.
