Publisher's Summary

The ramifications of the Manhattan Project are still with us to this day. The atomic bombs that came out of it brought an end to the war in the Pacific, but at a heavy loss of life in Japan, and the opening of a Pandora's box that has tested international relations.

This book traces the history of the Manhattan Project, from the first glimmerings of the possibility of such a catastrophic weapon, to the aftermath of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It profiles the architects of the bomb, and how they tried to reconcile their personal feelings with their ambition as scientists. It looks at the role of the politicians, and it includes first-hand accounts of those who experienced the effects of the bombings.

Chapter 1 missing

The entirety of Chapter 1 is from the wrong book - something about cocaine addiction. Hopefully they can fix this for future listeners.
