Abstract:

Describes the events and people surrounding the creation of the atomic bomb, and examines the effects of its use during World War II.

Thousands of American soldiers were dying and millions more were perishing during World War II. Some of the world's greatest scientists escaped their own war-torn countries and fled to the United 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. 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.
