Target Hiroshima: Deak Parsons & the Creation of the Atomic Bomb
Al Christman. Navy Captain Parsons made the atomic bomb happen. As associate director at Los Alamos, Parsons turned the scientists’ nuclear creation into a practical weapon. He approved the release of the bomb that forever changed the world. This book, based on declassified Manhattan Project documents, including Parsons’ logs & other untapped sources, offers an unvarnished account of this unsung hero & his involvement in some of the greatest scientific advances of the 20th century, such as radar & the proximity fuse, as well as the atomic bomb. His influence continued after WW2 when he helped establish the Navy’s postwar nuclear policies & advance the scientific developments that are at the heart of today’s sea service. B&W photos.
