The Bomb that Changed the World
Hill Williams

At an isolated location along the Columbia River in 1944, the world’s first plutonium factory became operational, producing fuel for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan during World War II. Former "Seattle Times" science writer Hill Williams traces the amazing, tragic story—from the dawn of nuclear science to Cold War testing in the Marshall Islands. Williams is also the award-winning author of the WSU Press bestseller, "The Restless Northwest."
