The dreadful global conflagration known as the Second World War was more than the clashing of great armies on bloody battlefields. A different kind of war was being waged in the secret laboratories on both sides of the conflict a war that would alter the course and determine the outcome of the bitter hostilities, forever changing our world and our future.
While it is a widely accepted fact that America's development and employment of the atomic bomb ended the Pacific struggle and that the failure of Hitler's scientists to develop their own A-bomb helped to doom Germany little has been made of the other remarkable scientific accomplishments of this dark and terrible epoch. Edifying, enthralling, startling, and sobering, Laboratory Warriors is a masterful work that sheds light on the technological achievements that swung the pendulum of victory in the Allies' direction.
