    One thought on “Made in Hanford: The Bomb That Changed the World”

    1. Hill Williams is the son of the guy who ran the local paper in Hanford, WA during the Manhattan Project. That makes for a pretty interesting insider's view of the development of the Hanford site. Williams also shows a nice ability to be pretty neutral on hot topics (pun intended). The book is a little all over the place in that it skips big pieces of Manhattan Project history, but mostly that's because he's focusing on the Hanford site specifically. His coverage of the Bikini Atoll atrocities (I [...]

    2. A very interesting read about my hometown and its very unique history. The author did a great job of explaining some very complicated principles in a way that was understandable.

    3. The author, Hill Williams, was in Pasco High School in 1943 when Lt Colonel Franklin Matthias came to his father's office at the Pasco Herald to tell him a bit about the upcoming Hanford project and the need for secrecy from the area's newspapers.Almost 60 years later, Williams, a retired reporter from the Seattle Times, writes a history of Hanford's role in the making of one of two atomic bombs that ended World War II. A warning to the lay reader, this book is as much, if not more, about the sc [...]

    4. Great history of my hometown. My Dad worked at the Hanford site as a biologist for many years, and I had basic knowledge about the site, but learned a great deal more about the history and process behind nuclear energy. The author, Hill Williams, was the son of the Pasco-based newspaper editor at the time. The story begins with Army officer Lt. Col. Matthias visiting Hill Williams Sr. in early 1943 and asking his cooperation in not publishing news about the project. From 1943-1945, Richland's po [...]

    5. I appreciated Hill Williams' style- as a science writer for a newspaper, he translated very technical information quite easily, and shared not just Hanford, but the making of the bomb and the impact from the testing in the Pacific. I want to read it a second time!
