"Full of fascinating characters, deeds of heroic daring . . . [a] powerful book."--New York Times One of the last secrets of World War II is why the Germans failed to build an atomic bomb. Germany was the birthplace of modern physics; it possessed the raw materials and the industrial base; and it commanded key intellectual resources. What happened? In Heisenberg's War, Thomas Powers tells of the interplay between science and espionage, morality and military necessity, and paranoia and cool logic that marked the German bomb program and the Allied response to it. On the basis of dozens of interviews and years of intensive research, Powers concludes that Werner Heisenberg, who was the leading figure in the German atomic effort, consciously obstructed the development of the bomb and in a famous 1941 meeting in Copenhagen with his former mentor Neils Bohr in effect sought to dissuade the Allies from their pursuit of the bomb. Heisenberg's War is a "superbly researched and well-written book" (Time) whose extraordinary story engrosses-and haunts.… (mer)

Not just an examination of whether Germany's most famous physicist kept Hitler from the atom bomb, but also a detailed look at the competition among physicists in Germany, Britain, France and the U.S. to understand atomic energy and their concerns over its potential wartime use.

An excellent book, Powers covers the whole story in detail while keeping a narrative pace which makes the story engrossing. This is something of an expose, as Powers argues that Heisenberg did indeed have the opportunity to go full-force in building an atomic bomb, but chose not to - but not for noble reasons. Powers argues that Heisenberg's motive was more about the enormous industrial effort required, and his observation that his neck might well have been on the line should he champion such a project and have such an experimental idea fail. Intriguing and insightful, this book lays bare a chapter of history which has been mysterious to date. ( )

2507 Heisenberg's War: The Secret History of the German Bomb, by Thomas Powers (read 22 May 1993) This book is an account of what Germany's leading physicist did during World War II. I thought the book poorly organized, but it revisits events which were vividly told in Richard Rhodes' classic The Making of the Atomic Bomb. The author concludes Heisenberg did not want to make a bomb for Hitler, and did not want to state so too plainly after the war. The thesis is well-supported and convincing. This was a book well worth reading. ( )
