The Race to Build and Steal the World's Most Dangerous WeaponBook - 2012
"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, dealing with the tiniest of particles, launched a cut-throat race that would span three continents. The players were the greatest scientists, the most expert spies, hardened military commandos, and some of the most ruthless dictators who ever lived. The prize: military dominance over the entire world. 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." -- dust jacket.
