Der Handlanger der Macht

Mein Name ist Pawel Anatoljewitsch Sudoplatow, aber ich erwarte nicht, daB Sie diesen Namen kennen, denn er gehörte 58 Jahre lang zu den bestgehüteten Geheimnissen der Sowjetunion … Ich war verantwortlich für die Ermordung Trotzkis, und während des Zweiten Weltkrieges leitete ich die Partisanen-Kriegführung sowie die Aktionen zur Täuschung und Desinformation des Gegners in Deutschland und den von der deutschen Wehrmacht besetzten Gebieten. Nach dem Krieg führte ich weiter verdeckte Agentennetze im Ausland mit dem Ziel, Einrichtungen der Amerikaner und der NATO zu sabotieren, falls Kriegshandlungen ausbrechen sollten. Ebenfalls leitete ich die sowjetische Atomspionage, um hinter die Geheimnisse der amerikanischen und britischen Atomlabors zu kommen. Ich baute ein Netz von Agenten um Robert Oppenheimer, Enrico Fermi, Leo Szilard, Bruno Pontecorvo, Alan Nunn May, Klaus Fuchs und andere Wissenschaftler auf, die die einzelnen Wissenschaftler dazu bewegten, uns atomare Geheimnisse mitzuteilen. Es ist befremdend, fünfzig Jahre zurückzublicken und sich an die Mentalität zu erinnern, die uns kaltblütige, selbstherrliche Rache an unseren Feinden nehmen lieB …

Oh Pure and Radiant Heart plucks the three scientists who were key to the invention of the atom bomb-Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard and Enrico Fermi-as they watch history's first mushroom cloud rise over the desert on July 16th, 1945.and places them down in modern-day Santa Fe. One by one, the scientists are spotted by a shy librarian who becomes convinced of their authenticity. Entranced, bewildered, overwhelmed by their significance as historical markers on the one hand, and their peculiar personalities on the other, she, to the dismay of her husband, devotes herself to them. Soon the scientists acquire a sugar daddy-a young pothead millionaire from Tokyo who bankrolls them. Heroes to some, lunatics or con artists to others, the scientists finally become messianic religious figureheads to fanatics, who believe Oppenheimer to be the Second Coming. As the ever-growing convoy traverses the country in a fleet of RV's on a pilgrimage to the UN, the scientists wrestle with the legacy of their invention and their growing celebrity, while Ann and her husband struggle with the strain on their marriage, a personal journey married to a history of thermonuclear weapons.

Genius in the Shadows

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/genius-in-the-shadows...
Well-known names such as Albert Einstein, Enrico Fermi, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Edward Teller are usually those that surround the creation of the atom bomb. One name that is rarely mentioned is Leo Szilard, known in scientific circles as "father of the atom bomb." The man who first developed the idea of harnessing energy from nuclear chain reactions, he is curiously buried with barely a trace in the history of this well-known and controversial topic. Born in Hungary and educated in Berlin, he escaped Hitler's Germany in 1933 and that first year developed his concept of nuclear chain reactions. In order to prevent Nazi scientists from stealing his ideas, he kept his theories secret, until he and Albert Einstein pressed the US government to research atomic reactions and designed the first nuclear reactor. Though he started his career out lobbying for civilian control of atomic energy, he concluded it with founding, in 1962, the first political action committee for arms control, the Council for a Livable World. Besides his career in atomic energy, he also studied biology and sparked ideas that won others the Nobel Prize. The Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, where Szilard spent his final days, was developed from his concepts to blend science and social issues.
