"The transcripts provide a unique insight into the characters, relationships and thoughts of a remarkable group of individuals." Nature In 1992 the transcripts of the secretly recorded conversation among ten key German nuclear scientists, including Hahn and Heisenberg, were made public. These important documents not only reveal what the German scientists knew and didn't know about building the atomic bomb in 1945, they also tell us what it was like to be a scientist in Germany during the Second World War. In this insightful book, the author annotates the transcripts in detail and presents a well-documented case to back his conclusion that German scientists knew very little about nuclear weapon technology before the Allies' bombing of Hiroshima.

From the Back Cover:

September 1939: The Third Reich launches the first military research effort into the viability of producing atomic weapons. For the project, the Nazis bring together an elite team of German scientists, who call themselves "The Uranium Club". For students of World War II or the atomic age, or anyone fascinated by the intertwining of science and politics, Hitler's Uranium Club provides an opportunity rare in recorded history: the chance to eavesdrop on pivotal figures in history as they complete one era, come to terms with it, and prepare their strategy for the next. As noted science historian David Cassidy writes in his introduction, "It is as though these men were lifted out of history at a crucial turning point - from the age of conventional weapons to the nuclear era - placed within a timeless container, and told to discuss their past and future as the recorders roll".
