The Manhattan Project: The Birth of the Atomic Bomb by Its Creators, Eyewitnesses and Historians

Author(s): Cynthia C. Kelly

History

The Manhattan Project (1942-1946) resulted in the development and detonation of the first nuclear weapons - and irrevocably changed the course of world events. Born out of a small research programme that began in 1939, the project would eventually employ more than 130,000 people and cost a total of nearly $2 billion - and it was operated under a shroud of deep secrecy. This authoritative book provides a complete and vivid history of the project and its legacy, from the widest array of perspectives and primary sources: secret documents, essays, articles, excerpts from histories, biographies, plays, novels, letters and oral histories.
