Abstract:
BBC film director Walker writes with a sense of urgency and high drama as he recounts the years-long effort to build an atomic bomb secretly, an effort doomed from the start thanks to the presence of Klaus Fuchs, Stalin’s man inside Los Alamos. What Robert Oppenheimer, Hans Bethe and company concocted at the cost of ulcers, alcoholism, broken marriages and other stresses has, of course, been the subject of many books before.
