About the Book
When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the world changed forever. But the story started long before that fateful day, and here Edward T. Sullivan delves into all that lead up to it: the scientific developments of the Manhattan Project, the Nazi nuclear arms program, and the massive committment by the United States to win the nuclear arms race.
