Surely one of the greatest pieces of luck in World War II was that the Germans never got the atom bomb. I say "luck" because German scientists were hard at work on one, as revealed in the famous conversation between German Nobelist Werner Heisenberg and Danish Nobelist Niels Bohr in Copenhagen. Germany also had the wherewithal, in the form of genius (the Germans were the first to split the atom) and resources (they controlled most of the world's supply of heavy water and uranium). So why didn't Germany get the bomb? Some surmise that German scientists had moral qualms, others say an atom bomb could not be completed in the time frame demanded by Hitler. In "The Devil's Alchemists," a visionary Nazi scientist finds a way around both of these obstacles.About the Author:
