Thousands of American soldiers were dying and millions more combattants and civilians were perishing during World War II. Some of the world’s greatest scientists escaped their own war-torn countries and fled to the Unites States. These scientists discovered a possible way to end the war. Thus began the three-year experiment resulting in the production and use of the atomic bomb. In THE SECRET OF THE MANHATTAN PROJECT, author Doreen Gonzales examines the creation of this powerful weapon and its place in the history of World War II. She presents the political, scientific and social issues surrounding the bomb, and looks at today’s issues about living in a world with nuclear weapons.
