ADMIRAL WILLIAM HENRY PURNELL BLANDY:
The officer in charge of Joint Task Force 1.
His nick-name was Spike, and he also has the dubious
distinction/nickname "Atomic Playboy". Here's a quote of his
from July 25, 1946:
The bomb will not start a chain-reaction in the water converting
it all to gas and letting the ships on all the oceans drop down
to the bottom. It will not blow out the bottom of the sea and let
all the water run down the hole. It will not destroy gravity. I am
not an atomic playboy, as one of my critics labeled me,
exploding these bombs to satisfy my personal whim.
