During World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was home to 75,000 residents, consuming more electricity than New York City. Thousands of civilians, mostly young women, were recruited, enticed by solid wages and war-ending work. Few would guess the true nature of the work done there. That is, until the end of the war and the secret was revealed. Interviewing the women who lived it, the author captures the spirit of the times through them: their pluck, desire to contribute, and enduring courage.

Most of us are familiar with WWII and with the development and use of the bomb. We are less familiar with the countless personal stories of the people who lived through those war years. This book provides a good perspective on that particular slice of American history. In particular, it focuses on the women who stepped in and got the job done at home while most of our able bodied men were overseas.
