Publisher Description

In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.

Spellbinding

This book really kept my interest. Didn't think I'd like a non fiction historical book so much. Author does a great job of building the characters to keep your interest. The espionage kept it exciting. Highly recommend this as a story that has not yet ended and for which we are all apart. We need to know the history of this terrible weapon.
