Fallout: Conspiracy, Cover-up and the Deceitful Case for the Atomic Bomb
As nuclear arms race of the 21st Century continues apace, Peter Watson’s new book lays bare for the first time how mankind blundered into the atomic age.
Using declassified intelligence documents from the UK, USA, Germany, Denmark and Russia, Fallout uncovers the secrets the world powers kept from each other, and a global cover-up that has only just come to light. From Moscow to Los Alamos, and Bletchley Park to Berlin, Watson reveals a hitherto unknown story of political intrigue and espionage amongst allies. The resulting account of the development of the most destructive force in human history combines meticulous archival research with the pace and intrigue of a thriller.
