It just took longer for the people to die after the bomb. Log in to Reply Now I wish I had gone with a bigger title. Largest sea invasion ever. Largest land invasion ever. Biggest tank battle in history probably* (Ok this one is a bit contentious. Brody is USUALLY cited, but you’ll occasionally see people claim Desert Storm or Yon Kippur War as larger tank battles) Log in to Reply And the deadliest uniforms, hugo boss. Log in to Reply I mean to have the first one with the last one is pretty insane. Log in to Reply WW2 🐐 Log in to Reply The bombing of Tokyo in Operation Meetinghouse killed about as many people as both nuclear bombs combined. Also, Operation Barbarossa was the largest land invasion force ever and Operation Overlord was the largest sea invasion force ever .

Also interesting to note that Truman didn’t *necessarily* have to unleash this power to end the war in the Pacific theater. Regardless, the power would have been discovered eventually either way. Rest assured that World War 3 will only last as long as it takes the first bomb to hit. We now possess the terrifying power to end the world in a matter of minutes. As monumental as WW2 was, WW3 will be the end of all life as we know it. So, ya know, let’s not. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
