ABSTRACT
The article presents an examination into the history of nuclear warfare, focusing on the political and military conditions just prior to World War II leading up to the use of the first atomic bomb. The author describes the political environment of the period, noting the presence of several factors causing the first nuclear arms race. Comparisons are then drawn between the conditions of that time and the contemporary 21st century efforts to reach total nonproliferation and disarmament.
