How to use "Hydrogen bomb" in context?

Hydrogen bombs are a type of thermonuclear weapon that use hydrogen as their primary explosive. The primary advantage of hydrogen bombs is their massive destructive power - a single hydrogen bomb can destroy an area the size of a city. Another advantage is that they are very easy to create, making them potentially usable by a terrorist group.

The first hydrogen bomb was developed by the United States in the 1940s. Since then, a number of different countries have developed hydrogen bombs. There are two main types of hydrogen bombs: the primary and the secondary. The primary hydrogen bomb is the strongest and the secondary hydrogen bomb is the weaker.
