The article reports on the refusal of publisher Henry Holt & Co. to print more copies of Charles Pellegrino's book "The Last Train from Hiroshima," a book which focuses on witness and survivor accounts of the August 6, 1945 bombing of Hiroshima, Japan by U.S. forces, due to doubts regarding the author's sources and the alleged doctorate degree he earned from Victoria University of New Zealand.
