Historic Photo of the Manhattan Project

200 photos of the historic Manhattan Project and the story behind the most incredible achievement in world history.

The atomic age began at 5:30 a.m. on July 16, 1945, with the explosion of “the Gadget” at Trinity near Alamogordo, New Mexico. Prelude to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which forced the capitulation of Japan and ended World War II, the Trinity test was the culmination of Herculean efforts by scientists, civilians, and the military of the United States to tap the potential of the atom for a wartime emergency. If Nazi Germany could engineer the bomb first, an Allied victory against Hitler was all but lost.

Historic Photos of the Manhattan Project is a look back at the epic struggle to build the world’s first atomic bomb. Nearly 200 images in vivid black-and-white reveal the project as it unfolded, from its secretive origins at Oak Ridge, Hanford, and Los Alamos, to the day Americans celebrated triumph over the Axis powers with victory over Japan. A pinnacle moment in the history of the United States, the Manhattan Project’s application of Einstein’s famous equation E = MC^2 shows, perhaps more than anything else, what can be achieved by the human spirit when the citizens of a great nation are united in freedom against a fearsome and despotic foe.

Mike Mahathy -- Scientist from Oak Ridge
Dr. Joseph's book is incredible. I finally got time to read it through for the first time tonight but will need to speed much more time with it. The book has many interesting photos of the MED days along with Dr. Joseph's eloquent words. Sadly, but honestly, the book also shows photos of the destruction left in Japan by the bombs. Rightly stated, one of the chapters is The Sadness of Warfare -- The Celebration of Peace, A Dichotomy of Evil and Good.

I urge you to soak in the contents of this nice historical work and reflect on the lasting legacies.
