Summary
  • "The history of the Manhattan Project, America's extremely secretive effort during World War II to develop the atomic bomb, is almost always presented in light of the male scientists who made the bomb. But, in fact, a large number of women were also involved in the project, although until now their contributions have largely been ignored."--Jacket
  • "Authors Ruth H. Howes and Caroline L. Herzenberg discuss the various scientific problems the women helped to solve as well as the discrimination they faced in their work. Their abrupt recruitment for the war effort and anecdotes of everyday life in the clandestine, improvised communities, what happened to the women after the war, and their present attitudes toward the work they did on the bomb are also included."--Jacket
