Announcing the Bombing of HiroshimaHarry Truman

Marcus Pineda4th block English II3/27/13BackgroundHarry S. Truman was born May 8, 1884 he was the 33rd President of the United States. The final running mate of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944, Truman succeeded to the presidency on April 12, 1945, when Roosevelt died after months of declining health.Truman served in combat in France as an artillery officer in his national guard unit.He gained national prominence as head of the wartime Truman Committee, which exposed waste, fraud, and corruption in wartime contracts.Truman asked all the members of FDRs cabinet to remain in place, and told them that he was open to their advice, but laid down central principle of his administration.

Video of the speech

Giving the speech SubjectHarry Truman is informing the American people on how the bomb dropped on the Japanese was pay back for what they had done at pearl harbor and that more powerful bombs are being developed.The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. In their present form these bombs are now in production and even more powerful forms are in development.Occasion The bombing of Hiroshima was in response to the bombing of pearl harbor.The massive production of atomic power.We are now prepared to obliterate more rapidly and completely every productive enterprise the Japanese have above ground in any city.We have spent two billion dollars on the greatest scientific gamble in history -- and won. We now have two great plants and many lesser works devoted to the production of atomic power. Employment during peak construction numbered 125,000 and over 65,000 individuals are even now engaged in operating the plants.

AudienceThe intended audience for this speech was the American people to inform them of the bombing and the mass production of atomic power.Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima and destroyed its usefulness to the enemy.The United States had available the large number of scientists of distinction in the many needed areas of knowledge.PurposeThe purpose is to encourage action to make people want to go to want to protect their country and its also to inform the American public on what is happening.But the greatest marvel is not the size of the enterprise, its secrecy, nor its cost, but the achievement of scientific brains in putting together infinitely complex pieces of knowledge held by many men in different fields of science into a workable plan. We shall destroy their docks, their factories, and their communications. Let there be no mistake; we shall completely destroy Japan's power to make war.

SpeakerThe speaker is president Harry Truman who is the new leader of the United States after the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He is also the commander in chief.Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima and destroyed its usefulness to the enemy.If they do not now accept our terms they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth. Behind this air attack will follow sea and land forces in such number that and power as they have not yet seen and with the fighting skill of which they are already well aware.

ToneThe tone is informative and encouraging.That bomb had more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. It had more than two thousand times the blast power of the British "Grand Slam" which is the largest bomb ever yet used in the history of warfare.It is an atomic bomb. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe. Major Premise/theme/main ideaEthosBefore 1939, it was the accepted belief of scientists that it was theoretically possible to release atomic energy. But no one knew any practical method of doing it. By 1942, however, we knew that the Germans were working feverishly to find a way to add atomic energy to the other engines of war with which they hoped to enslave the world. But they failed. We may be grateful to Providence that the Germans got the V-1's and V-2's late and in limited quantities and even more grateful that they did not get the atomic bomb at all.This is showing credibility because everything he is saying is supported by dates and facts.

PathosThe Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet.This makes you want to go fight in the war to show the Japanese not to mess with America.

LogosThe battle of the laboratories held fateful risks for us as well as the battles of the air, land, and sea, and we have now won the battle of the laboratories as we have won the other battles.Developing the atomic bomb was a battle itself due to the fateful risks

RepetitionIt had more than two thousand times the blast power of the British "Grand Slam" which is the largest bomb ever yet used in the history of warfare.With this bomb we have now added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe.Phrasing/MeaningThe Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. -The Japanese decided to bomb the wrong people, they have been fully repaid but thats not the end.But the greatest marvel is not the size of the enterprise, its secrecy, nor its cost, but the achievement of scientific brains in putting together infinitely complex pieces of knowledge held by many men in different fields of science into a workable plan. -The greatest thing being able to work together and get what they needed to get done finished.Powerful linesThe Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet.The battle of the laboratories held fateful risks for us as well as the battles of the air, land, and sea, and we have now won the battle of the laboratories as we have won the other battles.But the greatest marvel is not the size of the enterprise, its secrecy, nor its cost, but the achievement of scientific brains in putting together infinitely complex pieces of knowledge held by many men in different fields of science into a workable plan.Literary Devices That bomb had more power than 20,000 tons of TNT.
