In contrast to a lot of what is presented for the public's edification (and titillation) in this day and age of confession, A Hole in the World is a work that is completely selfless. Richard Rhodes is here to share three crucial and helpful things with us. His story is a difficult one, but told so well and sincerely that I found it mesmerizing.

I got a better grasp of the magnitude (and pace!) of the Manhattan Project.
I got a better understanding of how the rationale to drop the bomb on a city was made. Part of this was a better grasp of the nature of the fire-bombing of German cities and its rationale - which was lead up to the nuclear bomb decision.

A very comprehensive account of the making of the atomic bomb. For me, a bit too comprehensive - but then again, history has never been my best subject. :)
