Book Summary:

On August 6, 1945, the world was electrified by the news that an American Army bomber had dropped an atomic bomb, with an explosive power equivalent to 20,000 tons of TNT, on the important Japanese military center of Hiroshima. Three days later another bomb, of improved design and even greater power, was dropped on Nagasaki. The following day, Aug. 10, the Japanese sued for peace. Newspapers and magazines throughout the world printed many thousands of words about the new weapon and the scientific developments that had made it possible. These stories were based largely on official War Department releases prepared by William L. Laurence, science reporter for The New York Times. At the request of the War Department, Mr. Laurence had been granted a leave by The Times several months earlier. Mr. William L. Laurence was the only newspaper man permitted by the War Department to go to all the plants and inspect the processes of production of the atomic bomb, the only newspaper man allowed to witness the secret trial of the bomb in New Mexico, and the only newspaper man who witnessed the actual dropping of one of the bombs on Japan, from a plane above Nagasaki. This book, first published in 1946, is the full story, so far as it may yet be revealed, of the atom bomb, written by the man who is unquestionably the best qualified to write it for the layman.

Book Summary:

In April 1945, Pulitzer Prize-winning U.S. science journalist William L. Laurence was summoned to the secret Los Alamos laboratory in New Mexico by General Leslie Groves to serve as the official historian of the Manhattan Project. In this capacity he also served as author of many of the first official press releases about nuclear weapons, including some delivered by the Department of War and President Harry S. Truman. Laurence was the only journalist present at the Trinity test in July 1945, and beforehand prepared statements to be delivered in case the test ended in a disaster which killed those involved. As part of his work related to the Project, he also interviewed the airmen who flew on the mission to drop the atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Laurence himself flew aboard the B-29 The Great Artiste, which served as a blast instrumentation aircraft, for the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. He visited the Test Able site at Bikini Atoll aboard the press ship, ‘Appalachian,’ for the bomb test on July 1, 1946. In his book The Hell Bomb, Laurence warns about the use of a cobalt bomb—a form of hydrogen bomb that, at the time of first publication in 1951, was still an untested device—which was engineered to produce a maximum amount of nuclear fallout. “I FIRST heard about the hydrogen bomb in the spring of 1945 in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where our scientists were putting the finishing touches on the model-T uranium, or plutonium, fission bomb. I learned to my astonishment that, in addition to this work, they were already considering preliminary designs for a hydrogen-fusion bomb, which in their lighter moments they called the “Super-duper” or just the “Super.” “I can still remember my shock and incredulity when I first heard about it [...]. Could anything be more powerful, I found myself thinking, than a weapon that, on paper at least, promised to release an explosive force of 20,000 tons of TNT?....”

Book Summary:

The obliteration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 brought the world to a stand still. This unimaginable shock confirmed to the world that the race to develop a working atomic weapon during World War II had been won by the American-led international effort. Horrific and controversial even today, these first uses of the atomic bomb had intense ramifications not only on the continued development of the bomb, but also on politics and popular culture. As well as the technological development, historian James Delgado also examines how the US Army Air Force had to develop the capacity to deliver the weapons, and examines the sites where development and testing took place, in order to give a comprehensive history of the dawning of the nuclear age.

Book Summary:

A thousand years after a global cataclysm, Earth has been remade into a lush, thriving ecosystem, but with a new dominant species: the machines. These massive, animal-like robots fills the land, oceans, and skies, serving as the guardians and enforcers of the revived natural order. New generations of humans live on in pre-industrial tribes, without knowledge of the doomed civilization that preceded them, that of the “Old Ones” – us. A hero known to all tribes, Alloy has defended them against deadly machines, infamous cults, vengeful insurgents and dangers from the ancient past. She achieved her greatest triumph defeating the rogue A.I. HADES, who sought to end all life on Earth. With Hades vanquished Aloy disappeared, her purpose and destination shrouded in mystery. Talanah was born to a family of noble hunters in Meridian, capital to the most powerful of Horizon’s tribes: the Carja. With Aloy’s help, Talanah was able to earn the title of Sunhawk, much to the chagrin of elitist Lodge members. In return she helped Aloy defeat HADES’ forces at Meridian. With her family’s legacy restored, Talanah reformed the Lodge, opening its ranks to all tribes. Despite achieving her life’s goal, however, restlessness began to gnaw at her heart. Dealing with Meridian’s bureaucrats and the troublesome remnants of the old Hunters Lodge elites failed to give her comfort, so she set out into the wilds, hoping to quell her restlessness with a contract to hunt a fearsome new machine – a Clawstrider. But the hunt proved more than she’d bargained for. Now, after recovering from an injury thanks to the aid of a mysterious hunter named Amadis, Talanah must end the threat of this hunter-killer machine. But that’s not her only problem. Kyran, a rogue Lodge member whom she denied the contract to, seeks its reward, unaware of the hunter-killer’s presence. Talanah is one of the few who understands the extent of the danger posed by this new strain of machine, thanks to a run-in with a good friend…
