Summary, etc.:
In the 1940s, the brightest minds of the United States and Nazi Germany raced to West Africa with a single mission: to secure the essential ingredient of the atomic bomb, uniquely high-quality uranium ore--and to make sure nobody saw them doing it. Packed with newly discovered details from American and British archives, this is the gripping, true story of the unsung heroism of a handful of good men--and one woman--in colonial Africa who risked their lives in the fight against fascism and helped deny Hitler his atomic bomb.
