April 12, 1945: After years of bloody conflict in Europe and the Pacific, America is stunned by the news of the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. At one point, Vice President Harry Truman, who is kept out of war planning and knows nothing about the top-secret Manhattan project, which aims to develop the world's first atomic bomb, must take command of a nation at war. many continents. Countdown: 1945 is a compelling true story of the turbulent days, weeks, and months that followed, leading to the fateful date of August 6, 1945, when Truman ordered a bomb to be dropped on Hiroshima. Chris Wallace, journalist and host of Fox News Sunday, reveals to readers the consciousness of the iconic figures in history who have indirect and real involvement in the Manhattan Project. From the legendary Albert Einstein, who eventually called his vocal support for the atomic bomb "the only big mistake of my life"; to lead researcher J. Robert Opie Oppenheimer and the Soviet spies who secretly infiltrated his team; to the fierce racing pilots of the plane chosen to drop the bomb, and many, many more. Perhaps "Countdown: 1945" is mostly the story of the new president's ordeal, facing a decision he knows will change the world forever. Truman's journey during these 116 days is a story of great drama: from the shock of learning about the existence of the bomb to the controversial advice he received from generals such as Dwight D. Eisenhower and George Marshall, to the fight against the devastating carnage that would ensue. if he launches the first American weapon of mass destruction.
