This sweeping historical narrative traces the spark of invention from the laboratories of 19th-century Europe to the massive industrial and scientific efforts of the Manhattan Project. Along the way, Fetter-Vorm takes special care to explain the fundamental science of nuclear reactions. With the clarity and accessibility that only a graphic book can provide, TRINITYtransports the reader into the core of a nuclear reaction --- into the splitting atoms themselves.
