The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon

Descripción

In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.

De Publishers Weekly

13/08/2012 – In his highly readable storytelling style, Sheinkin (The Notorious Benedict Arnold) weaves together tales of scientific and technological discovery, back-alley espionage, and wartime sabotage in a riveting account of the race to build the first atomic weapon. The famous (Robert Oppenheimer) and infamous (spy Harry Gold) headline an enormous cast of characters, which also includes Norwegian resistance fighter Knut Haukelid, whose secret wartime missions prevented Hitler from acquiring an atom bomb. B&w portraits of key players appear in photo-montages that begin each of the book s four sections. Sheinkin pulls from numerous sources to supply every chapter with quotations that swiftly move the narrative forward. Suspenseful play-by-play moments will captivate, from the nuclear chain reaction test at the University of Chicago to the preparations for and dropping of the first bomb over Hiroshima. In a genie out of the bottle epilogue, details of the Cold War s escalating arms race and present-day weapons counts will give readers pause, especially Sheinkin s final thoughts: It s a story with no end in sight. And, like it or not, you re in it. A must-read for students of history and science. Ages 10 up.

Reseñas de usuarios

A well-researched, well-told story.

Even though it is written for middle grade readers, adults will learn something, too. It is a story about the science of and history behind atomic weapons.
