The text describes the underlying scientific discoveries that made nuclear weapons possible, how the Project was organized, the daunting challenges faced and overcome in obtaining fissile uranium and plutonium and in designing workable bombs, the dramatic Trinity test carried out in the desert of southern New Mexico in July, 1945, and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The final chapter surveys current worldwide nuclear weapons deployments, and a Bibliography lists sources of published and online information along with numerous links."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
