KIRKUS REVIEW

A crisp and canny exploration of Britain's ""untold"" participation in the development of atomic warfare stressing England's 1939-41 activities. All of the protagonists involved in the chain of reactions which culminated in Downing Street's Maud Committee uranium findings have been interviewed. The super secrets, pioneer pursuits, underground speculations and cloak and dagger mischief resemble the stratagems of a spy thriller, yet the book is a highly important recreation of real events that until now have been considered top secret information.
