Birthplace of the Atomic Bomb : A Complete History of the Tr…



It was not Robert Oppenheimer who built the bomb–it was engineers, chemists and young physicists in their twenties, many not yet having earned a degree. The first atomic bomb was originally conceived as a backup device, a weapon not then currently achievable. The remote Trinity Site–the birthplace of the bomb–was used as a test range for U.S. bombers before the first nuclear device was secretly detonated. After the blast, locals speculated that the flash and rumble were caused by colliding B-29s, while Manhattan Project officials nervously measured high levels of offsite radiation. Drawing on original documents, many recently declassified, the author sheds new light on a pivotal moment in history–now approaching its 75th anniversary–told from the point of view of the men who inaugurated the Atomic Age in the New Mexico desert.
