This book describes in detail Soviet espionage to discover American nuclear secrets. It begins with the work of Arthur Adams, who came to the United States in 1938 as a spy. It discusses problems of security experienced by the Manhattan Engineering District and the impact of information obtained by spies on the implementation of the first Soviet atomic bomb. The roles of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Igor Gouzenko, Harry Gold, Klaus Fuchs, Joan Hilton, and others are explained. Written the early 1960s and reprinted with a new preface in the late 1970s, the book has a strong anticommunist stance, and argues that Soviet espionage was widespread and effective in delivering valuable nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union.
