"If you could press a button that would sacrifice 100,000 people to save a million, would you do it? In the midst of World War II, Lt. Col. Paul Tibbets Jr. of the Army Air Corps is asked that question, looks at the buzzer his superior officer puts in his hand--and presses. Tibbets' unflinching answer gives him the command of the Enola Gay, the B-29 that will drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and help bring the war to a sudden end. Robert Taylor stars as Tibbets in this carefully detailed true story of the man and the mission that changed the world"--Container.

Robert Taylor gives a fine portrayal of Paul W. Tibbets Jr. who dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima from the Enola Gay B29. There is a very compelling story to the man and his mission. This is all true and if your interested in history, this is for you.!
