The Making of the Atomic Bomb PDF/EPUB ↠ of the

Here for the first time in rich human political and scientific detail is the complete story of how the bomb was developed from the turn of the century discovery of the vast energy locked inside the atom to the dropping of the first bombs on JapanFew great discoveries have evolved so swiftly or have been so misunderstood From the theoretical discussions of nuclear energy to the bright glare of Trinity there was a span of hardly than twenty five years What began as merely an interesting speculative problem in physics grew into the Manhattan Project and then into the Bomb with frightening rapidity while scientists known only to their peers Szilard Teller Oppenheimer Bohr Meitner Fermi Lawrence and yon Neumann stepped from their ivory towers into the limelightRichard Rhodes takes us on that journey step by step minute by minute and gives us the definitive story of man's most awesome discovery and invention

    This is the most comprehensive non fiction book you will NEVER read What why? Because it takes 30 hours to complete Look I’m no speed reader but neither am I a dullard This book is so chock full of compounding facts so dense that interpreting it takes devastating attention This book must be paced like a thoroughbred There’s not a picayune fact in 886 pages—and these pages are 7 x 9 small bordered 10 font single spaced with substantial primary source quotation in 8 font 60 pages of pictures are unnumberedI don’t use these words often on Goodreads maybe 3 times in toto but here they are and all together at once The Making of the Atomic Bomb is a tour de force a magnum opus a bible a masterpiece a work sui generis Richard Rhodes has conducted a crusade to chronicle all things Atomic Bomb In scope and scale this is Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Tolstoy’s War and Peace and David McCullough’s TrumanFor his effort especially during the Cold War when archives were classified Rhodes received1 The Pulitzer2 The National Book Award3 The National Book Critics Circle Award4 Jason’s 5 StarI can’t summarize this book Doing so would be equal to reviewing the history of the papacy from Christ to presentBut I’ll try For youThe People Rhodes introduces about 500 characters but follows in essential detail the 50 70 scientists and military brass and politicians whose names are forever linked to the history of the atomic bomb The construction of the A bomb is as much the ultimate conflagration of personal fear and desire of Jewish and expat German scientists as it is a story about physics This overlay of humanity perfectly balances what would otherwise be a tough scientific readThe Science Rhodes requires you not only to recognize your high school physics but to remember it and manipulate it The book is written well above the 10th grade level To some this requirement will be a drawback and you’ll be lost on page 5 But for those of us comfortable with the basics of quantum mechanics the book is a sweet payoff and makes up for those missed parties in college studying Calculus III Rhodes adroitly presents the physics beginning in the late 19th century that is fundamental to understanding the process that led scientists to discover and control spontaneous nuclear fission This is where I mercifully abstain from enumerating key points of quantum mechanicsThe Complex You will learn that production of the atomic bomb was not merely resigned to the labs and acreage at Los Alamos No In fact to produce Little Boy and Fat Man US industry built unique facilities that by war’s end would equal the footprint the employment and the cost of the entire North American auto industry in 1945 and far exceed its complexity It’s a wonder that secrecy was maintained across so many facilities and university labs and with so many participating scientists around the world Nuclear fission was first demonstrated in 1939 yet by 1945 culminating with Trinity man had harnessed the power to break apart the atomThe War Rhodes reveals the operations and battlefield maneuver of all three levels of warfare critical to the production of fissile nuclear material and provides a bright interpretation of well known battles that if slightly different would have drastically changed the timeline of production for components of the A bomb for Allies and Axis He dovetails the history of WW II and the lock step production of U235 and Pu239 He also respectfully underscores the ethical considerations of US policy toward the use of fission weapon on civilians There is a great chapter about Hiroshima and Nagasaki from the Japanese civilian perspective and again perfectly balances what would otherwise be a tough scientific readRhodes finely combines these topics in a galloping well rounded and seamless story of the wonder of man’s intellect the exigencies of fighting world domination and the revelation of a new science pulled from the face of God
