Brighter Than a Thousand Suns: A Personal History of the Atomic Scientists Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How long would it take before Germany developed an atom bomb? This crucial question was put to President Rooselvelt. The facts about how scientists later failed to stop the use of the bomb are central to his compelling and horrifying narrative, of which perhaps no aspect is more fascinating than the controversial case of J.

Synopsis:
