Thought Provoking

by TheDuke on Jun 3, 2010

This is an intriguing book. It follows the course of both American and Russian development of Hydrogen bombs, and details much of the Russian espionage in the US weapons program. And it develops the inner conflict that many of the top scientists in the American program felt regarding the wisdom and morality of their efforts to create a super weapon. I never came to a conclusion whether Oppenheimer acted as a spy, or as a loyal American who just didn't care for the security requirements. The book seems technically sound, and it makes an excellent read.
