At the height of World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee was home to 75,000 residents, many of them young women from small towns across the South. Their work on a secret project later known as the Manhattan Project is revealed by Denise Kiernan in her new book, The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II (Touchstone). "The Girls of Atomic City is the best kind of nonfiction: marvelously reported, fluidly written, and a remarkable story about a remarkable group of women who performed clandestine and vital work during World War II. Denise Kiernan recreates this forgotten chapter in American history in a work as meticulous and brilliant as it is compulsively readable." - Karen Abbott.
