Apr 25, Tim rated it really liked it. While I felt it started a bit disjunct mostly because of the author’s writing styleI found myself quickly absorbed.
There were quite long passages that were very dense detailed and technical but they were immensely interesting.
I only wish there was more of the historical details about the actual missions to drop the bombs, but there are other books for that. The text itself wasn’t very long, only 87 pages. The appendices, which are the gold mine of this book almost pages worth!
This is really a fantastic resource for anyone interested in the first atom bombs. Would that it were published in a real book format rather than a spiral bound edition. Jul 22, Ryan rated it it was amazing. The definitive history of the only two nuclear weapons used in a war. Well-researched, well-written, and constantly updated. Highly recommended to anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of the technical side to Fat Cosyer-mullen and Little Boy.
