In the special 20th anniversary edition of this journalistic account of the Los Alamos atomic explosion that opened the nuclear age, the author includes two new chapters on what happened to the Los Alamos veterans and the state of nuclear science in the world. The rest of the book investigates how the first atomic bomb was built and tested under extraordinary wartime secrecy conditions from early 1943 until the test on July 16, 1945. It also looks at the long-term consequences of the Trinity test and the era it created. First published in 1965, the extensive book reads well, and includes many photographs and a bibliography.
