Half-inch chip to top edge of jacket rear, jacket lightly toned. 1967 Hard Cover. 329 pp. In April of 1939, four months before the beginning of the Second World War, two German physicists sent a letter to the German War Office curiously resembling Einstein's famous letter to President Roosevelt, written in the same year. They wrote: We take the liberty of calling to your attention the newest development in nuclear physics, which, in our opinion, will probably make it possible to produce an explosive many orders of magnitude more powerful than conventional ones. In America, Einstein's letter set in motion a series of decisions that led, six years later, to the explosion of the atomic bomb. In Germany, the physicists' letter led to the creation of a similar project...that failed. ...the story of this project--and of the reasons for its failure.
