"It would be well for anyone fresh from the reading of this book to bear closely in mind that the Hiroshima bomb was but a tiny infant of such weaponry - that within a few years of its explosion a nuclear weapon would be tested which was two thousand three hundred times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb. Multiply the pages you have read by a number like that." - John Hersey.
