ENOLA GAY

THE STORY OF THE CREW AND THE B-29 BOMBER THAT DROPPED THE WORLD'S FIRST ATOMIC BOMB



"I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

- J. Robert Oppenheimer, quoting the Bhagavad-Gita after detonation of the world's first atomic bomb.

On August 6, 1945, the first atomic bomb intended as a weapon was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, instantly annihilating over 70,000 people. ENOLA GAY combines two compelling, topflight documentaries that tell the remarkable story of America's decision to forever alter the course of history.
