Compare and Contrast
The last book I read for class was called Hiroshima. This book was about the atomic bomb that was dropped on Japan, and the stories of the survivors during and after the attack. Both books, Hiroshima and In Harm's Way were about tagedies that killed thousands. These books actually intertwine, the sinking of the USS Indianapolis happened on July 29, 1945, which was an attack on a US ship by the Japanese- In Harm's Way. And on August 6, 1945, the city of Hiroshima in Japan was attacked by an atomic bomb, dropped by the United States. Both books are based on battles/attacks between the US and Japan during WWII. However, they are somewhat different because In Harm's Way is about a US ship getting attacked at sea by Japan. And Hiroshima is a book based on the the attack and the aftermath of the atomic bomb drooped on Hiroshima.
