Germany surrendered May 7, 1945. Atomic Bombs had not yet been invented. They were being worked on, but not completed. The very first Atomic Bomb constructed was "Trinity" and was not completed until July 15, 1945. Trinity was exploded at the White Sands New Mexico test site on July 16, 1945 to see if Atomic Bombs would really work. Before Trinity there were no atomic bombs. The second Atomic Bomb was "Little Boy" and was built after Trinity was exploded. Little Boy was the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. It took only 2 weeks after Trinity to construct Little Boy. It took a week of debate to decide whether the bomb should be used and to transport Little Boy by ship to Tinian Island where it could be dropped on Hiroshima. Japan was too far for an airplane to fly from the USA to Japan with Little Boy, drop it and then fly back. Aircraft technology had not advanced far enough to develop an aircraft capable of a round trip, so they had to fly from an Island close enough to Japan to make a round trip.

The atomic bomb was not ready for use until it was tested on July 16, 1945. It took more than four years to develop it and get it ready to use.
