“A New Look at Nagasaki -1946” Book Signing to be Held at Fairleigh Dickinson University

Teaneck, NJ (October 30, 2008) - Robert Walsh, a retired a U.S. Army 34th Infantry 24th Division soldier telephone lineman, who was stationed near Nagasaki and the subject of the new book “A New Look at Nagasaki – 1946” will be on hand on November 20, 2008 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. to sign copies as well as give some personal reflection on the bombing of Nagasaki with a question and answer session and slideshow. Also in attendance will be FDU Professors and authors Dr. Eamon Doherty, Dr. Joseph Devine and Joel Liebesfeld. Contributing authors also included Professor William Pat Schuber along with Todd Liebesfeld.

The book presents both a historical account and personal view of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 and follows Robert’s experiences after the war. Robert took approximately 275 pictures for his photo album with a simple Kodak camera; many of the pictures are in the middle of the scene and show the devastation of the atomic bomb as well as a marker for the epicenter. The book includes many of those pictures, which are presented chronologically. 

The event is free and open to the public and will be held in FDU’s Wilson Auditorium, Dickinson Hall, 140 University Plaza Drive, Hackensack, NJ. Following the question and answer session and slideshow, there will be a tour of FDU’s Cyber Crime Lab.  For more information about this event, please contact  at Doherty@fdu.edu.
