Related cultural data point: Grave of the Fireflies - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grave_of_the_Fireflies - a superb and moving anime adaptation of Hotaru no Haka (A Grave of Fireflies), Akiyuki Nosaka's semi-autobiographical novel about a brother and sister who have to fend for themselves during the famine after the firebombing of Kobe in 1945. ("Fireflies" was the Japanese nickname for incendiary bomblets).

"Little Boy", the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima was a gun-type uranium bomb. "Fat Man", the bomb dropped on Nagasaki was an implosion device, which used plutonium.
