This biography of the life of General Leslie Groves covers the period from when he was assigned the position of director of the Manhattan Project until his death in 1970. Author William Lawren puts great emphasis on Groves’ role at Los Alamos, and chronicles the development of the bomb from an administrative, rather than a scientific point of view. The author draws on Groves’ personal papers, related documents, and his family’s perspective to tell the story, and includes additional information of historical importance.
