THE MAKING OF THE ATOMIC BOMB

By Richard Rhodes

(Subject: History & Development of Warfare - General) The Making of the Atomic Bomb remains the definitive history of nuclear weapons and the Manhattan Project. From the turn-of-the-century discovery of nuclear energy to the dropping of the first bombs on Japan, Richard Rhodes’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book details the science, the people, and the socio-political realities that led to the development of the atomic bomb. This sweeping account begins in the 19th century, with the discovery of nuclear fission, and continues to World War Two and the Americans’ race to beat Hitler’s Nazis. That competition launched the Manhattan Project and the nearly overnight construction of a vast military-industrial complex that culminated in the fateful dropping of the first bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

THE GERMAN WARS 1914-1945

WAR DEPARTMENT TECHNICAL MANUAL TM30-430: HANDBOOK ON U.S.S.R. MILITARY FORCES

(Subject: History & Development of Warfare - General) This handbook is the product of a unique set of circumstances. In 1945, with the collapse of the German armies, General Reinhard Gehlen, together with his staff, surrendered to US forces. He was the chief of Foreign Armies east, the German Intelligence section on the eastern front. He and his files were brought to Alexandria, Virginia, where, working with US Intelligence specialists, he produced the information on which this handbook, published, chapter by chapter, during 1945 and 1946 was based. For unknown reasons the chapters relating to Armored vehicles, Artillery and Small Arms (viii and x) were never published. Working with captured Soviet materials and 4 years of first-hand combat intelligence reports, the authors produced a picture of Soviet Military organisation which could not be created today, now that so many of the documents are no longer available and so many participants are no longer living. Inasmuch as Soviet military archives were practically inaccessible, the report relied on secondary literature for the Soviet version of World War II. In the late ‘70s some Soviet literature began to reveal more details and, in general, the data published in this report corresponded surprisingly well with more recent Soviet data. The report contains numerous organisational charts/ORBATs, illustrations, tactical maps and diagrams.
