This assemblage of primary documents chronicles the Manhattan Project from Einstein’s letter to Roosevelt to an article about Hiroshima written in 1981. It includes important documents such as Stimson’s diary entries, presidential telegrams, cabinet memos, notes on committee meetings, Szilard’s petition to Truman, and newspaper pages from the days after the bombs were dropped. It also contains a list of major characters, a chronology from 1938 to 1945, and a short introduction to the Trinity test. Discussion questions at chapter ends encourage readers to form their own opinions about issues.
