Overview

"This historic book . . . presents Riehl's absorbing account of his key role in the production of pure uranium for . . . the Soviet nuclear bomb program [and], written by uniquely qualified Frederick Seitz, an extraordinary and perceptive introduction."—Glenn Seaborg, Nobel laureate in Chemistry "A fascinating story admirably told. . . . I was intrigued by Riehl's ability to survive those difficult times, by his accounts of Russian science, and by his insight into the Russian people of all levels."—Bruce Merrifield, Nobel laureate in Chemistry "The book has solid value as source material, for Riehl was an eyewitness to important affairs and social circumstances that are otherwise poorly documented."—Spencer Weart, AIP Center for the History of Physics
