Synopsis: In the fall of 1942, when given the job of managing the building of the atomic bomb, then-Colonel Leslie R. Groves was a career officer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Racing for the Bomb tells the gripping story of how Groves — more than any single scientist — was crucial to the Manhattan Project’s success. Driving manufacturers, construction crews, scientists, industrialists, bureaucrats, and Army Air Corps pilots to generate the capital, materials, and plans needed for the project, Groves also orchestrated solutions to thousands of technical problems. Robert Norris portrays Groves at center stage making nearly every key decision to build, test, and use the bomb.

About the Author: ROBERT S. NORRIS has been a research associate for almost twenty years at the Natural Resources Defense Council. He has written extensively about the nuclear programs of the United States, the Soviet Union and Russia, Britain, France, and China.
