Roosevelt from what I understand during the Battle of the Bulge pressured scientists to speed up the bomb's development. I don't doubt after what happened at Dresden he would have hesitated to use it in Europe.
It's probably too late now, right?

Maybe I've forgotten my history, but didn't the Krauts surrender on 8 May 45 and the first successful test was at Alamagordo, NM in July? A little late...unless..unless...that old bastard Patton was intending to take it to the Soviets.
