The bomb on Hiroshima was in 1945, but when I selected 1944 it set off a mine.

I don't like the minefield quizzes! Please put this in the name so people will know.

There's absolutely no reason for this to be a minefield - if you get one wrong then fair enough, just get on with the rest of the quiz.

@ ChileNoseJam: Fair enough, no longer a minefield quiz. Thanks for the feedback.

I got 6, but it said that I only got 1, I think this has to do with the bonuses…
