Ending WW2 - Development and Delivery of the Atomic Bomb

“THE BOMB, THE PLANE AND THE END OF WORLD WAR TWO : Laying the Foundation of our Military Industrial Complex”


The story of the men who developed the USA’s first what we now call  “weapons systems”. Three men led this effort such that without them it is very doubtful the weapons would have been developed in time to end World War Two. Also hear and understand how we decided to use the Bomb instead of the other alternatives promoted by the US Navy and the US Air Force to finalize the defeat of Japan.
