Average account of the race to build the atomic bombCimino is the pen name of Nigel Cawthorne, a serial author of war, true crime, art, science, history, literature, fashion, sex and humour books.This book is described as being written for laymen, but I did find the technical detail quite hard to follow and as such I did skip some sections. Whilst it's not possible to avoid some degree of technical detail the nuances of various isotopes and neutrons went over my head.Despite this Cimino does sho [...]

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review. I have mixed feelings about this book - it is a generally well-written primer on the topic of the Manhattan Project, which was the scientific effort during the second world war to research, and build the atomic bomb which was ultimately responsible for bringing the war to an end. I was slightly disappointed when I saw the size of this book, as I have read much more comprehensive works which cover the same s [...]

Pretty self-explanatory by the title of this book, this is a pretty quick summary of the science, history and people and events behind the Manhattan Project. Unfortunately, it's a little uneven and at times, poorly written and confusing. Still I do think this short book can help AcDec students understand a little more clearly the technology behind Uranium and Plutonium atomic weapons and the roles that Hanford, Washington, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Los Alamos, New Mexico and their scientists and [...]

Too technical but good overview
