Summary
An all-new, unabridged translation of Keiji Nakazawa's account of the Hiroshima bombing and its aftermath, drawn from his own experiences. In this memoir, six year old Gen has lived practically his entire life in the shadow of war, yet he is not prepared for the horrors which follow. The graphic novel provides an honest and emotional portrayal of the various struggles of his family and other survivors against overwhelming odds. Introductory essays add additional information
