Hiroshima atomic bomb: Survivor recalls horrors - BBC News

In August, one of its B-29s dropped a Little Boy uranium gun-type bomb on Hiroshima. Three days later a Fat Man plutonium implosion-type bomb was dropped by another B-29 on Nagasaki. The bombs immediately devastated their targets. Over the next 2 to 4 months, the acute effects of the atomic bombings killed 90,000–146,000 people in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000 people in Nagasaki.
