Book Description

The Manhattan Project: Making the Atomic Bomb is a short history of the origins and development of the American atomic bomb program during World War II. Beginning with the scientific developments of the pre-war years, the monograph details the role of United States government in conducting a secret, nationwide enterprise that took science from the laboratory and into combat with an entirely new type of weapon. The monograph concludes with a discussion of the immediate postwar period, the debate over the Atomic Energy Act of 1946, and the founding of the Atomic Energy Commission.

The text for this publication was adapted from the History Division, now Office of History and Heritage Resources, publication: F. G. Gosling, The Manhattan Project: Making the Atomic Bomb DOE/MA-0001; Washington: History Division, Department of Energy, January 1999).

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money December 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is factually inaccurate, poorly written in various passages and didn't provide additional insights that one might expect from a book written recently.
