Admiral William D. Leahy, the President’s Chief of Staff of both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Combined U.S.-U.K. Chiefs of Staff said:

 

“The use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender. . . .In being the first to use it, we . . . adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages. I was not taught to make war in that fashion, and wars cannot be won by destroying women and children. “
