This is an amazing piece of historical journalism. It is very lengthy, but very informative. This man wrote the stories but newspapers censored his reports.

This is from the web page:
American George Weller was the first foreign reporter to enter Nagasaki following the U.S. atomic attack on the city on Aug. 9, 1945. Weller wrote a series of stories about what he saw in the city, but censors at the Occupation's General Headquarters refused to allow the material to be printed. Weller's stories, written in September 1945, can be found below.
