Edward T. Sullivan’s ‘The Ultimate Weapon – The Race to Develop the Bomb,’ was a very informative book and a very quick read. While this book was rated Juvenile, I believe that it is more appropriately suited for a reader 13 years-of-age to adult due to the content.

A complimentary book that covers the same material but with far more detail on the spies working on the Manhattan Project and their impact on the Soviet’s progress on catching up to America, would be Steve Sheinkin’s - ‘Bomb -The Race to Build-and Steal-the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon.’ Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.
