The bombing destroyed Hiroshima, killing the majority of its populace and ending its contribution to the Japanese war effort. However, as foreseen by the US, the bombing did not bring immediate Japanese capitulation. Although the attack was unprecedented in the scope of devastation, it was not immediately clear if the US claims about it were factual. The leaders of Japan were much more thoroughly awed when a second city, Nagasaki, was similarly destroyed 3 days later. Within a week they had sued for peace, with their Emperor himself declaring that the Japanese faced utter annihilation unless they surrendered. (To his military, he instead stressed that Japan could not logistically counter the threat posed by the Soviet invasion of Manchuria.)

In the longer scale, the bombings set the stage for the Cold War nuclear stockpiles by the US and Russia, notable for the fact that they could never be used with impunity.
