Book recommendation:

The Making of the Atomic Bomb

Richard Rhodes
Paperback
ISBN 1471111237
Buy on Amazon /UK

 

Maybe the best book of any kind that I've ever read. I loved this as a simultaneous story of the evolution of modern physics, the escalation of the brutality of war, adn the challenges overcome in managing a massive engineering project. Totally gripping stuff. On top of all that the quality of the writing is mesmerizing.
