One Source i found immensely interesting is a first hand account of an American soldier stationed in the Pacific preparing with his fellow soldiers and squads preparing for the assault on the island of Japan. It gives you a perspective of one very grateful soldier when he discovers that their long bloody war in the pacific was finally over with having to risk his life in Japan. It helps provide a solid amount of context in which to consider the dropping of the bombs as well as place the American mindset towards the Japanese.
