Bomb: The Race to Build--And Steal--The World's Most Dangerous Weapon

By Steve Sheinkin

In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.

"Bomb" by award-winning author Steve Sheinkin, is a 2012 National Book Awards finalist for Young People's Literature, a 2012 "Washington Post" Best Kids Books of the Year title, and a 2013 Newbery Honor book.
