    The Bastard Brigade kindle à eBook Hardcover ä Sam Kean The Bastard BrigadeReview first posted on Fantasy LiteratureSam Kean who wrote the delightfully informative Caesar’s Last Breath in 2017 about the topic of gases including a section on nuclear bombs delves deeply into the history of the atomic bomb in The Bastard Brigade Though the subtitle might lead one to presume that it focuses solely on the Allies’ Alsos mission the group charged with thwarting Nazi Germany’s development of the atomic bomb this book is much wide ranging in its topics The Bastard Brigade is a sweeping account of the development of nuclear physics prior to and during WWII the race to develop a working atomic bomb and finally the Alsos mission itself Part I set during the prewar years to 1939 introduces readers to the various persona

    The Bastard Brigade kindle à eBook Hardcover ä Sam Kean The Bastard BrigadeI received a review copy from the publisher which has in no way affected my review and in fact I had already preordered the book before they contacted me because Sam Kean is like a non fiction Scheherazade and frankly it’s annoying how easy he makes it look to expound upon complex scientific concepts whilst simultaneously regaling us with a crackerjack tale of historical whizzbangery I’m looking into having him kneecapped rest assured but in the gentlest manner in which one can crack a patella because he seems like a nice guy and I’m not a savageIn a departure from his prior books which stitch together discrete and freuently disparate scientific and often historical tales around a unifying theme see for example Caesar’s Last Bre

    The Bastard Brigade kindle à eBook Hardcover ä Sam Kean The Bastard BrigadeSam Kean is already one of my favorite authors and his latest offering is yet another fantastic blend of science and human interest The Bastard Brigade unfolds the Allied effort to prevent Nazi Germany from building an atomic bomb We've all considered the horrifying counterfactual of Hitler obtaining an atomic weapon and perhaps heard stories about the Germans confiscating heavy water or employing scientists like Werner Heisenberg but in Bastard Brigade we learn just how close they did and didn't come to succeeding what happened to their three year head start and the happy accidents and subterfuge that stymied their efforts along the wayIt's a multifaceted story with a fascinating cast of characters from famed baseball catcher Moe Berg who moonlighted as an agent for the OSS predecessor to the CIA and JFK

    The Bastard Brigade kindle à eBook Hardcover ä Sam Kean The Bastard BrigadeIn the intro we learn that Sean King is first a physicst and second a fan of literature He explains that he hadn't written a book involving physics because he wanted one where he could tell a storyThis introduction pretty much summarizes my core on the book The author talks about his first two loves and neither of those are historyThe Bastard Brigade is a fun story and well tgold That being said I can't say it is solid history It is a fun pulp history

    The Bastard Brigade kindle à eBook Hardcover ä Sam Kean The Bastard BrigadeBy Kean's own admission B Brigade is a departure from his usual style being a focused A to B story Although is some respects the story is much like the Brigade an intriguing whole pieced together from bits and pieces all over It's hard to explain the story isn't a straightforward tale of a crack team thrown together for a challenging task but of a compilation of the various missions and people associated w
