The hydrogen bomb had not been developed before the end of World War II and therefore, the H bomb did not have an impact on Japan. The two bombs dropped on Japan, effectively ending the wat, were atomic -- but not "thermonuclear," or hydrogen bombs. Simply put, atomic bombs split atoms apart; hydrogen bombs fuse atoms together and the energy released by a hydrogen bomb is about one thousand times greater than the energy released by an atomic bomb.
