This photographic record documents the Manhattan Project from breaking ground at the production sites to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan. Text accompanies many of the pictures, and they are all explained by captions.

It also contains photographs from the Trinity test, the delivery of the bombs to Japan, and the mass destruction after their explosions. The book includes an introduction by Richard Rhodes, a short afterword, a timeline, a glossary, and some short profiles accompanied by photographs.
