Now it can be told; the story of the Manhattan project by Leslie R Groves( Book )

34 editions published between 1962 and 1983 in 4 languages and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Leslie Groves and J. Robert Oppenheimer were the two men chiefly responsible for the building of the first atomic bomb at Los Alamos, code name "The Manhattan Project." As ranking military officer in charge of marshaling men and material for what was to be the most ambitious and expensive engineering feat in history, it was General Groves who hired Oppenheimer (with knowledge of his left-wing past), planned facilities that would extract the necessary enriched uranium, and saw to it that nothing interfered with the accelerated research and swift assembly of the weapon. This is his story of the political, logistical, and personal problems of this enormous undertaking which involved foreign governments, sensitive areas of press censorship, the construction of huge plants at Hanford and Oak Ridge, and a race to build the bomb before Nazis got wind of it. The role of Groves in the Manhattan Project has always been controversial. In his new introduction the noted physicist Edward Teller, who was there at Los Alamos, candidly assesses the General's contributions- and Oppenheimer's while reflecting on the awesome legacy of their work. -- Publisher description
