    I am doing an essay comparing/contrasting the bombings on Japan and Germany during World War II and also analyzing whether they were justified or not. I need 15 primary documents from ALL SIDES, no matter how biased they are. The primary documents from the Allies side is incredibly easy to find, but even with multiple Google searches, I have yet to find any decent primary documents from the German and Japanese side about the bombings.

    Is anyone aware of any primary documents whether it be leader speeches, letters, civilian accounts on the attacks, reactions etc from the Germans or Japanese? I guess I could have them translated if they are only found in a foreign language.

    Would the interviews in this documentary help with Japan?
