War’s End, by Major General Charles W. Sweeney USAF (Retired) with James W. Antonucci and Marion K. Antonucci

General Sweeney was the last military officer to command an atomic mission. It is the story of the months that lead to the most single event in modern history – the deployment of nuclear weapons during wartime.

The 286 pages are unparalleled in any war books I’ve previously read.
