Why would Grove have told the engineers "the only thing we have to think about is that the war is over"? The decision to use atomic weapons was opposed by some who felt it was immoral. The decision to use atomic weapons was not supported by most Americans The decision to use atomic weapons prolonged the war against Japan. The decision to used atomic weapons allowed German scientists to develop similar weapons.
