The review of Churchill’s Bomb in the Times Higher Education was one of three published over the past few days:

‘Graham Farmelo’s very fine book … illuminates the nexus between science, politics, war, and even literature better than anything I have read for some time. The issues it raises are both eternal and especially pressing now. It is not yet Book of the Year time but this has to be a contender.’

Peter Forbes, The Independent
