Summary

In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: Whenplaced next to radioactive material, a uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned three 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 Los Alamos. Meticulously researched and expertly crafted by award-winning author Steve Sheinkin, this is the story of the plotting, risk-taking, deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.
