I found this book by chance after becoming interested in the creation of the atomic bomb and doing a book search. I enjoyed this graphic tale of how it came to be. It felt eerie seeing the artist's rendition of how all the events played out. I enjoyed this book and found it informative, even if written as a graphic text. This will nicely supplement the other, heavier texts that I got on the subject.
Wow! Superb text and illustrations tell the story of the events leading up to the development of the first atomic bomb, the manufacture and dropping of the bomb, and the consequences of the decision to do so. Lots of information packed into this book.
