Amir D. Aczel's Uranium Wars

Ivy Mike

I just finished Amir D. Aczel’s book “Uranium Wars.” I enjoyed it well enough, but I feel like it’s a bit of a superficial treatment of the topic of the discovery of fission and the development of the Bomb. It seems kind of credulous at times. However, it did give me an excuse to go watch the DOE video of the Trinity and Ivy Mike shots, which, disturbingly enough, always makes me happy.
