Review: BONES OF BETRAYAL by Jefferson Bass

Lezlie from Books ‘N Border Collies read Bones of Betrayal by Jefferson Bass, which she says would make a good selection for the WWII reading challenge because it focuses on the development of the bomb and wartime life.

Here’s an excerpt from her review:

Some of the characters in Bones of Betrayal find themselves wrestling with their feelings regarding the U.S. decision to use the bombs code-named Little Boy and Fat Man, and that will probably be the aspect of this book that sticks with me the most. I’m not familiar with the deeper stories of the building of the nuclear weapons used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, so learning about things like the Manhattan Project and the beginnings of the town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee was what really held my attention.
