By 1945, the war confronted scientists with many ethical questions - concerning not only the use of the atomic bomb, but also the potential use of chemical and biological weapons, whose development was almost forgotten in the aftermath of Hiroshima.

Looking beyond official histories, this book draws upon collective scholarship in several related fields in assessing some of the leading characteristics of the scientific war in the Pacific. Unusually, it explores aspects of the war and its impact not only in relation to America and Japan, but also in the experience of Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
