Pulitzer Prize winning account of development of the Atomic bomb by Richard Rhodes. Very engaging account of all of the scientists, engineers and politicians involved in the vast scientific back drop that lead to the creation of the atom bomb. Begins in the late 19th century with the discovery of Radium and follows the trail all the way to the detonation of the first Hydrogen Bomb. Covers at length great scientists such as Niels Bohr, J. Robert Oppenheimer and Enrico Fermi.
